Brittany Haas and Lauren Rioux
Brittany Haas and Lauren Rioux Two fiddlers from widely respected bands (Brittany Haas of Crooked Still, and Lauren Rioux from Darol Anger's Republic of Strings) are joining forces. As a duo, the women bring their extensive knowledge of Appalachian music and experience of being at the forefront of the contemporary string band scene, as well as the strength and depth of seasoned performers. Their music is steeped in groove, emotion-filled and harmonically progressive. The joy they share on stage as they weave and dance through duets on their instruments and vocals is palpable among audience.

"Brittany & Lauren joining musical forces is fiddle bliss. What I wouldn't give to sit at the feet of these two melding their voices and bows! ..."
-- Abigail Washburn

"The street knows Britt and Lauren are each a force on their own. These two pull a pile of rhythm, melody, harmony from their two fiddles and occasional banjo. Together they shred tunes, break hearts, and threaten to take over the world. Don't worry, it will be a benign regime. Go see them now...."
