Among the many talents on full display on Tristan Scroggins and Alisa Rose’s recent album of mandolin and violin duets, Grana, is the duo’s ability to transform familiar traditional tunes and classical pieces into canvases for creative and exciting musical exploration. Each has a finely tuned ability to improvise, and together, they play off of each other in fun and unexpected ways.

Scroggins and Rose stopped by the Peghead Nation studios recently and put their improvisation chops to work on a fiddle tune equally popular in bluegrass and Irish music circles, “St. Anne’s Reel.” Enjoy!
