Exceptional musical talents converge in the Minneapolis String Project; a high-energy trio that’s breaking boundaries through eclectic pop/funk covers and genre-defying original works. Ernest Bisong, David Feily and Greg Byers performed together for years in diverse spheres of the Minnesota music scene before forming a unique musical partnership. MPLS String Project deviates from the standard repertoire of classical or bluegrass instruments and instead draws from jazz, fusion, rock, soul, folk, and Brazilian music influences.Their original compositions expand the conventional use of the many instruments they play: violin, cello, bass, guitar, banjo, and mandolin. Live performances leave audiences dazzled by their technical wizardry, simpatico improvisation, and engaging on-stage presence.
