5 p (edt)



Bee Eaters cellist Tristan Clarridge will stop by Back Up and Push for a visit with host Sandy Goodson.  If we are lucky, he may bring along both his cello and fiddle (the latter for which he is a five time Grand National Champion).

The Bee Eaters trace their roots back to musical traditions as diverse as bluegrass, Celtic, jazz and old-time.  While today’s new breed often produces an amalgamation of sounds and styles based on a distant view, the Bee Eaters were raised embedded in these traditions… raised to mold, meld, shape them and carry them forward, leaving their own indelible marks in the process.  Brother-sister duo Tristan and Tashina Clarridge, long known and lauded by those steeped in the American fiddle tradition, are joined by hammer dulcimer wizard Simon Chrisman.

Multi-instrumentalist Tristan is an innovative cellist and 5-time Grand National Fiddle Champion. Also a member of the bluegrass/folk sensation Crooked Still, his talents have been sought by Darol Anger, Mike Marshall, Bruce Molsky and Cape Breton fiddle phenomenon Natalie MacMaster.
