Beginning as members of the David </span>Grisman<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Quintet while in their young twenties, they have continued to stretch their musical boundaries through recordings, performances and educational initiatives over the past three decades. In this episode, we listen to multi-instrumentalist Mike Marshall and fiddler </span>Darol<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Anger from their 2013 </span>SMF<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> performance at the Charles H.

Importantly, this tradition still serves as the impetus for songs being created today. One of the most original Swedish groups to emerge in the late 20th century is a trio known as Väsen, whose creative output has shown that Swedish traditional music is still alive and well in our time. During this episode, we listen to Väsen as they combine forces with two of American music's finest improvisational players, Mike Marshall and Darol Anger, in a performance the group gave at the Savannah Music Festival. Each of the five players brings his own personality to the table and the sum of the parts is one that takes instrumental music in new, innovative directions.</div><p> Fri, 15 Mar 2013 01:00:00 +0000 24714 at http://redriverradio.org Savannah Music Festival: Mike Marshall, Darol Anger and Väsen Savannah Music Festival: Mike Marshall, Darol Anger and Väsen http://redriverradio.org/post/savannah-music-festival-mike-marshall-darol-anger-and-v-sen <p><strong>Airs Thursday, April 19 at 8:00 p.m.</strong>&nbsp; Innovators in acoustic music from America and Sweden come together to explore the commonalities between Swedish polskas and Appalachian fiddle tunes.
