Episode 074 - feat. The Violin Brothers, Spare Rib & the Bluegrass Sauce, Garth Knox

The Violin Brothers - "Swaraswati Kalyan"
Spare Rib and the Bluegrass Sauce - "Sweet Child O' Mine"
Garth Knox - "Malor me bat"

Hello everyone,

As you may have heard, I am in the process of pulling back from my involvement on the show, letting it go to a more "by-committee" approach. If you are interested in being part of the future of this show, drop me an email and I will connect you with others who are working to see this show continue. Thanks!!

The Violin Brothers, Debsankar and Jyotisankar Sankar, bring their English music education, as well as their learning from Indian masters such as Pandit Ravi Shankar and Ustad Amjad Ali Khan to create a violin-intense sound that merges many traditions from both North and Sount Indian music. It is a life-changing event watching this group play live. This is a live recording from the prestigious Dover Lane Music Festival.

Spare Rib and the Bluegrass Sauce is sort of a trippy neo-traditional bluegrass outfit from Seattle. High energy, dancy, and political, this group takes blugrass to a new level. This is their take on the popular Guns 'n Roses classic.

Garth Knox is an Irish born string player who explores possibilities of the viola d'amore. His breathtaking new album D'Amore features contemporary work for the instrument as well as compositions that date back to the Renaissance. This piece is Knox's own composition.
