Savannah Music Festival: Mike Marshall & Darol Anger Live

Airs Thursday, March 20 at 8 p.m. More than 25 years ago, two of the most original string players in the community of American vernacular instrumental music joined forces, setting in motion a partnership that continues today. Beginning as members of the David Grisman 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 Darol Anger from their 2013 SMF performance at the Charles H. Morris Center.

Savannah Music Festival: Mike Marshall, Darol Anger and Väsen

Airs Thursday, March 14 at 8:00 p.m.  Innovators in acoustic music from America and Sweden come together to explore the commonalities between Swedish polskas and Appalachian fiddle tunes. Recorded live at the Charles H. Morris Center during the Savannah Music Festival. 

The country of Sweden has a folk music tradition that goes back at least 700 years. 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.
