Darol Anger and the Republic of Strings perform at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar onThursday, May 11 at 8pm as part of a Music Network tour. With his unique genre-bending blend of bluegrass, jazz, folk and classical styles, Grammy-nominated fiddler Darol Anger is a master of the unexpected, darting from Swedish polkas to Brazilian choro before segueing seamlessly into a soul classic — all delivered with the rollicking abandon of a hootenanny.
For this wildly virtuosic musical journey, he is aided and abetted by a trio of nimble-fingered pioneers, long-time collaborator and five-time Grand National Fiddle Champion Tristan Clarridge, acclaimed multi-instrumentalist John Mailander, and riveting vocalist Emy Phelps. A dazzling night of music is in prospect. Darol Anger and Republic of Strings perform at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar onThursday, May 11, at 8pm.
