Sept. 5: Monster String Quartet at the Dance Palace

Fresh from a residency at Alasdair Fraser’s summer fiddle camp, fiddle maestro and instructor Darol Anger brings his Monster String Quartet this weekend to West Marin. The “monsters” in this case are three young girls in their 20s: Lauren Rioux, Brittany Haas and Natalie Haas. The sisters Haas are known best for their work with the Boston bluegrass band Crooked Still, while Rioux, from Scarborough, Maine, has a private studio of fiddle students age five to 65. All three girls have been students of Anger and members of his acclaimed Republic of Strings project. See what the stripped-down version comes up with when they pull, chop and bend the strings on Saturday, Sept. 5, at the Dance Palace. 503 B St., Point Reyes Station. 8pm. $5–$20. 415.663.1075.Gabe Meline
