Artist Profiles: Fiddlers 4

Fiddlers 4

Fiddlers 4 was a collaboration featuring some of the finest fiddlers in the United States. Michael Doucet is well loved for his work as the leader of Cajun supergroup BeauSoleil; Darol Anger, a veteran of the David Grisman Quintet and founding member of the Turtle Island String Quartet, is the leading exponent of jazz-infused newgrass; and Bruce Molsky is internationally acclaimed old time fiddler. Together with cellist Rushad Eggleston, the quartet offered a cross-cultural fiddling fest, rooted in the musics of Louisiana, the Appalachian mountains and the Marin, California foothills.
