Turtle Island Quartet
Turtle Island Quartet

Listen
AIR DATE: March 2, 2012

To say that the Turtle Island Quartet doesn't take the traditional approach to music is to put it lightly: its cellist once performed at an 11,000-feet elevation on a cello made of ice.  The Grammy-winning quartet boldly crosses between bluegrass, rock, bebop, funk, R&B, and swing, paying homage to everyone from Beethoven to Hendrix and Coltrane. 
 
Join us, as we talk with two of its founding members, and Mark Summer gives a special cello performance of "Little Wing."  The Turtle Island Quartet performs Friday, March 2, at 7 p.m. at the Historic Fifth Street School.
