May 16.

Anger, who slides into the Rosendale Cafe for this spring hoedown, also cofounded the Darol Anger / Barbara Higbie Quintet and the jazz-leaning Turtle Island String Quartet. He currently leads Republic of Strings and has played in Psychograss, the Duo, Fiddlers Four, Mr. Sun, and other projects. Singer and guitarist Emy Phelps toured for seven years with Brian Ransom's Ceramic Ensemble and recently returned to the stage after taking time off to research indigenous music in Peru, teach elementary and middle school, and raise four children.
