Fans of mad string skills will find we’re the only game around (a VERY LONG WAY AROUND) that specifically aims for string instrument virtuosity, support of young emerging artists who are insanely talented, and workshops by those same people.
Play the violin? Here’s a smapler of what you either saw or missed: Alasdair Fraser, Jason Anick (John Jorgenson Quintet), Elana James (Hot Club Of Cowtown), Brittany Haas, Jay Ungar, Hanneke Cassel, Winifred Horan, Jordana Greenberg (Harpeth Rising), Christian Howes, Jeremy Kittel, Mazz Swift, Laura Cortese, Mariel Vandersteel, Multi-National Champion Katie Glassman, April Verch, Pascal Mouisse, Andrea Beaton, Mairi Rankin, Liz and Yvonne Kane, Tania Elizabeth, and more than I can list here.
Cello? Also a who’s who: Rushad Eggleston, Ben Sollee, Mike Block, Natalie Haas, Nathaniel Smith, Maria DiMeglio, Ari Friedman, and more.
Bass: Jake Erwin (Hot Club Of Cowtown), Simon Planting (John Jorgenson Quintet), Paul Kowert (Haas, Kowert, Tice and Punch Brothers), and again, a whole lot more great ones.
Violas? Ha! Wait… ok, the only viola was Lauren Rioux and her 5-string viola. Bummer..
