Darol Anger and Brittany Haas: “My Rose of Old Kentucky”
 
Fiddle masters play the Bill Monroe bluegrass classic.
April 20, 2015

Darol Anger is a legend of contemporary fiddling. His progressive multidimensional playing has influenced generations of forward-thinking bluegrass, jazz, and rock violinists. He was first person to hold the fiddle chair in the David Grisman Quintet, and he was a founding member of Montreux, Turtle Island String Quartet, the Duo (with Mike Marshall), and his own visionary string group the Republic of Strings. He is also a pioneer of “the chop,” a rhythmic accompaniment style that he and Peghead Nation fiddle instructor Brittany Haas discuss in her Fiddle Styles Workshop segment with Darol. In this video, they demonstrate their backup approaches with a great two-fiddle version of Bill Monroe’s song “My Rose of Old Kentucky.” Darol’s five-string fiddle was made by Nathaniel Rowan in 2010 and is named Hal, after the main character in 2001: A Space Odyssey. The fiddle is a work of art with some unusual decorative touches, including, on the back, a large red eyeball, a black pyramid, and a blue “cloud of unknowing.” darolanger.com
