Playing fast and furious stringband music, whether it be Balkan,
Bluegrass or ancient Chinese, Red Chamber's fingers fly with passion
and precision. This powerful ensemble of masterful musicians perform
over two thousand years of music on traditional Chinese instruments,
from ancient scores of the Tang Dynasty (618-907) to modern compositions.
These four virtuosi break cultural and stylistic boundaries, creating
a new sound that is putting audiences on their feet at every performance.
Guest Bluegrass artists John Reischman and the Jaybirds join Red Chamber
on two pieces of REDGRASS.
