"Split the Difference" new music for violin/fiddle from Aaron Ashton

Aaron Ashton is one of those rare instrumental musicians equally at home with classical, folk, and jazz, and he mixes it all together on "Split the Difference," his new album of eclectic and electric tunes for fiddle and violin.

You'll hear about musical influences, mixing genres, playing in church, and mostly about the fun a bunch of talented musicians can have while pushing boundaries and just plain making music.

That's this week on The Cricket and Seagull.

Michael Dowdle Rocks on "Convergence"

Most Latter-day Saints know him for his acoustic guitar work on the "Twenty-Five Beloved Hymns" series, but guitarist Michael Dowdle's first and continuing love has always been the electric guitar.

On this pedal-to-the-metal album of instrumental power trio music you'll hear why he's a favorite on YouTube with his playing videos, hear Michael's philosophy of rock and roll, and learn why this new album was sparked by a scripture in the New Testament (hint; it has to do with a candle and a bushel) and a listener from Holland.  You might even develop a whole new appreciation of guitar virtuosity.

That's this week on The Cricket and Seagull.
