about

Award-winning instrumentalists and composers Tristan Scroggins and Alisa Rose have created an album that explores both the dynamic capabilities of a string duet and the creative overlap between baroque and bluegrass improvisation. With vast experience and knowledge of both traditional folk music and classical styles they create new music that utilizes risky improvisation and innovative musical techniques that are captured in both the original and familiar tunes present on this recording. Their effort present a study of both active listening and performance skills as the listener is invited into and pulled to each others spur of the moment musical colors and ideas to create a ever changing exciting performance. Listeners will be rewarded with missed details after every following listening as this record adds to the ever growing lexicon of new acoustic music.

​GRANA is a dynamic acoustic album exploring the potential of the acoustic duet within the framework of classical and folk improvisation.
