ETHEL

Musically omnivorous, prolific, and passionate, this band of four world-class, Juilliard-trained composer/musicians includes: Cornelius Dufallo (violin), Ralph Farris (viola), Dorothy Lawson (cello), and Mary Rowell (violin). Performing self-composed works as well as works by notable contemporary composers: Don Byron, Mary Ellen Childs, Pamela Z, Marcelo Zarvos, John King, Phil Kline and others, ETHEL incorporates rock, blues, classical, jazz and other popular genres to create a sound that defies categorization. Described as “the fiercest string quartet this side of hell,” and “the most bad-ass quartet around,” ETHEL has at one time shared the stage with pop/rock icons Todd Rundgren and Joe Jackson and has appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
