If you haven’t heard of the cheerfully named supergroup Mr. Sun, you’ve certainly heard its proponents, four of the finest musicians on the American roots scene: renowned fiddler Darol Anger, Professor  Emeritus at Berklee College of Music, who has released many solo albums in addition to his work with David Grisman and Mike Marshall, and founded the Turtle Island Quartet, Psychograss, and Republic of Strings;  Joe K. Walsh,  mandolin virtuoso and vocalist who spent four years with the award-winning bluegrass act the Gibson Brothers before becoming solo artist and songwriter and Strings Department Professor at Berklee; all-around guitar genius Grant Gordy, a former member of Dawg Music guru David Grisman’s band; and the phenomenal Scots bassist Aidan O’Donnell, who has backed harpist Maeve Gilchrist and countless modern Jazz heroes. Their appearances in the last 4 years at Wintergrass, Grey Fox and Freshgrass, and at IBMA conventions, have created a powerful presence throughout the Acoustic Americana music scene.

Bermudagrass is Dore Coller’s idea to perform Caribbean musical styles on Bluegrass instruments, honing in on the harmonic possibilities of blending these different styles together in the tightness of a trio.

“Entertaining, highly musical album, reflecting his eclecticism in a new musical style he’s dubbed “Bermuda Grass,” a blend of Caribbean and bluegrass music. Coller is an in-demand guitarist and multi-instrumentalist…..masterful flatpicking on guitar, crisp, clean playing that makes this CD an example of some very fine Marin musicianship, regardless of what you call it.” -Paul Liberatore, Marin Independent Journal
