What do you get when you mix the leader of a well-known Cajun band; a founding member of an influential jazz-newgrass group; an old-time fiddler and young, upstart cellist? The answer is Fiddlers 4, a group whose musical influences run the gamut from traditional African beats to Appalachian bluegrass to surf music.
This hour, Fiddlers 4 shares with us their music and the role that the fiddle has played in many genres of music.
Fiddlers 4 (Fiddlers Michael Doucet, Darol Anger and Bruce Molsky and cellist Rushad Eggleston)
