American Fiddle

Violinist and composer Darol Anger, a founder of the Turtle Island String Quartet, joins us to talk about his current group, The Republic of Strings. This intergenerational string quartet/band somehow connects jazz, bluegrass, world music, jam band and chamber music, old-time jazz, soul, country and fuses them into a unique slice of Americana. For this New Sounds, Anger presents tunes from the new CD, Generation Nation and more.
