In Studio: Turtle Island Quartet

They have 2 violins, viola, and cello, but that doesn’t make them a classical string quartet.  The Grammy-winning Turtle Island Quartet occupies the gray area where jazz, classical, rock, and world music meet.  They’ll play Jimi Hendrix and original music live in our studio.
