He also just finished a series of tours in both Europe and Japan. And if you’re into movies, check out "The Big Short", a film which was nominated for 5 Oscars this year! Eric plays sax on the soundtrack and is featured on a few solos, it was a real "thrilling experience" as he put it. Stay tuned this summer, he’ll be playing with the Chick Corea Electric Band who will reunite for a series of tours around the country.

In Fiddle news, Darol Anger is involved with a lot of different things as usual. He’s coming off a week in Spain for the Barcelona Fiddle Congress and as he says, "I feel like I'm at a career peak with my playing & teaching ability." If you haven’t heard it yet be sure to check out his ensemble album Mr. Sun, which features Darol on fiddle along with Joe Wash, Grant Gordy, and Ethan Jodziewicz. It’s gotten great reviews and they’ve played a bunch of fun shows together as a group. Darol has played a lot of shows recently with some other great musicians as well including his old mentor David Grisman and bluegrass legend Del McCoury, which as he says was "a great moment".
