Eric Christopher and Anthony Ihrig at the Cedar — October 11

Anthony and I have been playing banjo-fiddle duets together for years. We started working up arrangements in our downtime with The High 48s, waiting backstage or killing time on the festival grounds. Eventually we decided take to our show out of the green room onto the stage.

This coming Tuesday, Anthony and I will be playing as a duo at the Cedar Cultural Center, opening up for the Nordic Fiddler’s Bloc, a fantastic trio of fiddlers from the Norway, Sweden and the Shetland Islands.

Of course I’m pretty excited to be on such a fiddle-heavy bill. It’s not every day we fiddlers get to hog this much spotlight. Safe to say, fiddles (and a lone, outnumbered banjo) will be representing on October 11!

Come on down — it’s gonna be fun.

Doors at 7pm; we take the stage at 7:30. Tickets $15 in advance, $18 at the door. Details and tickets here.
