About the Artists
A collaboration of 2 unique and deeply affecting musicians. Legendary fiddler and multi-string master Darol Anger focuses his talents on the singer-songwriter’s art with Emy Phelps, a standout artist and prolific songwriter with a riveting voice which plumbs the deepest emotions. These 2 musicians bring out each other’s special ability to convey deep emotional resonance combined with a bit of hot pickin’, and already have 2 CDs and numerous music festival performances to their credit.
Fiddler, composer, producer and educator, Darol Anger is at home in a number of musical genres, some of which he helped to invent. Exceptional among modern fiddlers for his versatility and depth, 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, his Duo with Mike Marshall, and others.
Emy Phelps is a remarkable vocalist/guitarist, songwriter, music educator, and recording artist, and currently a member of the Furies. A musician of note in the Pacific Northwest, she has made a 30 year music career while raising 3 sons and a daughter. In addition to her current release, Look Up, Look Down, she is the featured vocalist on the new Furies release, and has a previous recording entitled As It Should Be on Sweet Mercy Records.
Opening the concert is Arlington’s own Fiddlin’ Quinn and His Big Folks Band. A prodigy on the fiddle, Quinn has been playing, singing and wowing audiences since the age of 5.
