The Bee Eaters
"The Bee Eaters are the instrumental cream of the brand new string nation. Harking back to the 'grand old days' when new virtuosos seemed to spring onto the scene fully formed with a whole repertoire of brilliant music nobody had ever heard before, somehow these kids have absorbed everything we had to offer and alchemized it into a new musical world." - Darol Anger

"It is a joy to hear both the exploration of this music and the grounding of it simultaneously. Also, I love the emphasis on the simple beauty of the acoustic instruments." - Edgar Meyer

"These Bee Eaters have bowled me over! Their bodaciously brilliant bowing and banjoing, the mellifluously magnificent malletwork, and impeccably impressive ensemble work leave me breathless. Compositionally, creatively, clarridgely and new acoustically (or whatever category you want to assign to them), they inhabit the highest rung of the musical ladder. Their music excites, heals and enriches. Listen often." - Tony Trischka

"The Bee Eaters' extraordinary instrumentation of hammered dulcimer, 5-string banjo, fiddle, and cello immediately sets them apart from the rest of the progressive string band world. But this band is no novelty. The textures are rich, the tunes are engaging and the playing is masterful. The interplay between the cascading dulcimer and the rolling banjo is truly a great sound." - Noam Pikelny
The Bee Eaters boasts four of the most accomplished, creative young talents of the new generation, tracing roots back to the musical traditions of Bluegrass, Old-time, Celtic, Jazz and Pop. The quartet combines the strong, striking music of hammered dulcimer virtuoso Simon Chrisman and banjo phenomenon Wes Corbett with the inimitable sound of brother-sister fiddle duo Tristan and Tashina Clarridge.
