Alisa Rose and Tristan Scroggins combine bluegrass and baroque style improvisation to add to the growing lexicon of new acoustic music. With breathtaking technical virtuosity and knowledge of both traditional folk music and classical styles they create music on the spot utilizing risky improvisation and innovative musical techniques. Their concerts present a study of both active listening and performance skills as they nearly psychically respond to each others spur of the moment musical colors and ideas to create a ever changing exciting performance.

Tristan Scroggins is an award-winning mandolinist and composer from Denver Colorado. He has visited and toured the Island many times as a member of the critically acclaimed bluegrass band Jeff Scroggins and Colorado.

Fiddler, violinist, composer and improviser Alisa Rose is a modern musician who easily navigates between many musical styles. With roots in classical music as well as the rich American musical tradition, she attracts attention for her expressive lyrical voice on the violin. She has performed with a wide range of artists including the Real Vocal String Quartet, 2008 Rockygrass winners 49 Special, and Grammy-nominated Quartet San Francisco.
