The Bee Eaters boasts four of the most accomplished, creative young talents of the new generation, tracing roots back to the musical traditions of bluegrass, old-time, celtic, jazz and pop. The quartet combines the strong, striking music of hammered dulcimer virtuoso Simon Chrisman and banjo phenomenon Wes Corbett with the inimitable sound of brother-sister national fiddle champions Tristan and Tashina Clarridge. The result of the foursome’s collaboration is an elegant fusion of tradition and innovation.

“the quartet combines chamber music's finely calibrated arrangements with bluegrass's playful virtuosity and pop music's melodic resourcefulness." ~The Boston Globe

“The Bee Eaters are the instrumental cream of the brand new string nation.”

~Darol Anger
