Live Concerts

Darol Anger and Emy Phelps with Family & "Fiends"

Event Date: 
Saturday, October 5, 2013 - 8:00pm
When Darol asks for a return gig, he gets it. And there is no telling which "fiends" he will bringing along! This will be a concert in a private residence somewhere west of Boston (not too far, in fact the MBTA runs nearby). RESERVATIONS AND PREPAYMENT ARE REQUIRED (suggested donation is $20pp). Send email to, we'll reply with instructions. Exceptional among modern fiddlers for his versatility and depth, Darol Anger has helped drive the evolution of the contemporary string band through his involvement with numerous pathbreaking ensembles such as his Republic Of Strings, the Turtle Island String Quartet, the David Grisman Quintet, Montreux, the Duo and other ensembles. Virtuoso fiddler and multi-string master Darol Anger here focuses his talents in service of the singer-songwriter's art. Emy Phelps is a standout artist in a large field, a prolific songwriter with a riveting voice which plumbs the deepest emotions. A musician of note in the Pacific Northwest, she has made a 30 year music career while raising 3 sons and one daughter, achieving degrees in Theatre Arts and Special Education, and touring for 7 years with Brian Ransom's Ceramic Ensemble. In combination, these 2 musicians bring out each other's special ability to convey deep emotional resonance and spark low-key fireworks. Family? Just you wait, you will be blown away by this cello virtuoso! Imagine a young Rushad Eggleson with Darol Anger chops. Fiends? - you'll have to come to find out, but you will not be disappointed!
