The 9th Annual Northwest String Summit (NWSS) returns to North Plains, Oregon for three days of music and camping July 16 – 18. Set at the scenic Horning’s Hideout, just 35 minutes west of Portland, the festival features some of the best and brightest acts in acoustic-jam music. Kick off your shoes, tune up your strings and get ready for the ultimate hootenanny, featuring three nights of Yonder Mountain String Band, plus sets by Rhythm Devils, moe., Danny Barnes, Darol Anger and more. Here is a glimpse of what to expect at the NWSS in order of appearance.
Darol Anger’s Republic of Strings :: Friday, July 16 :: 6:00-7:15pm
Darol Anger’s name is synonymous with contemporary fiddling. His music draws influence from the traditional improvisational forms of bluegrass and jazz, while incorporating themes of classical, folk, pop and world flavors. Anger’s current development, The Republic of Strings, acts as an inter-generational exploration of string music. Their genre melding approach is bound to sweep one away with the celestial sounds of the traditional string quartet.
