Mike Marshall and Darol Anger

October 13
at 8:00pm

Tom and Lisa Music of Shelter Island are proud to present two of the world’s finest musicians, mandolinist Mike Marshall and violinist Darol Anger, for a one-night-only performance at the Bay Street Theater on Friday, October 13 at 8:00 pm.

Mike Marshall has been at the forefront of New Acoustic music for over 40 years having been the founding member of many groups including the The Modern Mandolin Quartet, Montreux Band, Psychograss, Choro Famoso and The Anger Marshall Band. He is indeed a living compendium of musical styles and has the ability to seamlessly blend his American roots background with a deep understanding of European classical music, Brazilian choro and other world music. Mike is a fluid jazz improviser and a master on mandolin, guitar, mandocello and violin.

Between 1999 and 2003 Mike collaborated with Joshua Bell, Edgar Meyer, Bela Fleck and Sam Bush on two separate projects. Both ensembles were nominated for Grammy Awards for their Sony Classical releases. In 2014 Mike was nominated for his third Grammy Award for his recording with the Turtle Island String Quartet.

As a music educator Mike is committed to passing on his knowledge through a variety of channels. He currently directs the Mike Marshall School of Mandolin through the ArtistWorks on-line educational company where he is teaching hundreds of mandolinists worldwide.

Fiddler, composer, producer and educator, Darol Anger has helped drive the evolution of the contemporary string band through his involvement with numerous pathbreaking ensembles such as his Republic Of Strings, the Turtle Island String Quartet, Montreux, and others. He was a member of the David Grisman Quintet on their eponymous 1977 debut release, and has performed and taught all over the world with musicians such as Dr. Billy Taylor, Bela Fleck, Bill Evans, Edgar Meyer, Bill Frisell, Tony Rice, Tim O’Brien, The Anonymous 4, Marin Alsop and the Cabrillo Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony, Mark O’Connor, and Stephane Grappelli.
Darol Anger is an Associate Professor at the Berklee School of Music, and has been a featured soloist on dozens of recordings and motion picture soundtracks.

Mike Marshall and Darol Anger have each recorded in wide range of settings from classical to jazz, South American music to bluegrass. Recordings and performances by Marshall's Modern Mandolin Quartet and Anger's Turtle Island String Quartet have become models of excellence in eclectic folk. Collectively, they chart a new kind of folk music that draws on tradition, but finds new trajectories that suggest a neoclassical world that defies categorization.  When speaking about Darol Anger and Mike Marshall’s live performances, people often use phrases like “synergy,” or  “space travelers.”

Mike Marshall and Darol Anger speak to each other through their instruments, in a genre or genres that they helped to invent.  They have a connection and a shared repertoire that goes very deep, developed over 35 years of music-making in a wide variety of music styles. Experiencing these what these two have the ability to do in concert can be nothing short of breathtaking.
