Fiddler and violinist, composer and improviser, Alisa Rose, is a modern musician who easily navigates between many musical styles. With roots in classical music as well as American traditional music, she attracts attention for her expressive lyrical voice on the violin. She is a member of the genre-bending Real Vocal String Quartet, Supermule, and the Club Foot Orchestra. Recently the Real Vocal String toured Eastern Europe as Ambassadors of the State Department, recorded on Feist's album Metals, and performed with Feist on the Tonight Show. From 2008 to 2012 Alisa was a member of Quartet San Francisco; their record QSF Plays Brubeck was nominated for a Grammy in 2009, for which Alisa was featured on National Public Radio’s Weekend Edition. Other notable performances include with the Keisa Duo at Carnegie Hall, with A.J. Roach and the Strange Pilgrims on PBS’s Song of the Mountains, at TEDx Alcatraz with Bob Weir, and with the bluegrass band 49 Special at the 2009 Rockygrass Festival where they took first prize in the band competition in 2008.
