Creating new traditional music for five- and ten-string fiddle, guitar, pump organ, piano, and percussive dance, 4tet comprises four of traditional music’s most compelling young talents. Fiddler Brittany Haas of the seminal folk-bluegrass band Crooked Still has teamed up with fiddler Cleek Schrey, guitarist Jordan Tice and innovative percussive dancer Nic Gareiss. All share an interest in performing traditional music, exploring new compositions, and simultaneously maintaining and critiquing the conventions surrounding folk music today. Following the work of mentors Bruce Molsky, Eleanor Neary, Darol Anger, Eileen Carson-Schatz, and others, 4tet continues the legacy and lineage of traditional music while probing the creative potential of fiddle tunes, traditional song, and percussive dance.  Admission $15, young kids free.
