A Stringed Salute to AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses

Rus­sell Fall­stad and Adam DeGraff come from Lewis­burg, West Vir­ginia. The two fiddlers/violinists have been close friends for 20+ years. They trained togeth­er at the same music schools, steep­ing them­selves in clas­si­cal music. Then, they decid­ed to move in a new direc­tion and explore the brave new world of “vio­lin rock,” where “clas­si­cal train­ing com­bines with siz­zling ener­gy and a raw impro­vi­sa­tion­al cre­ativ­i­ty.” Above you can watch the Duel­ing Fid­dlers pre­pare for their debut con­cert, per­form­ing an AC/DC mashup of “Back in Back” and “Thun­der­struck.” Maybe one day you’ll find them on tour with 2Cellos, who per­form G ‘n R’s “Wel­come to the Jun­gle” below.

    ‘A Stringed salut­ed’? Is the band called A Stringed or is this a gram­mat­i­cal error?

    Vio­lin rock is hard­ly a “brave new world”. Try look­ing for Ed Alleyne-John­son on YouTube, he’s been rock­ing his elec­tric vio­lin for years!
