As you read this, The Friction Quartet is in the midst of a busy tour of the northeast, with concerts in New York and Philadelphia. Hard to imagine that just last week they were a world away from all that, at the Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival.
As the first group invited to our special "Winter Residency", Friction enjoyed a fully-sponsored week in the beautiful and remote village of Hyampom, tucked on the banks of the South Fork of the Trinity River.
The group enjoyed home-cooked (and home-grown!) meals from festival sponsors, a wood-fired hot tub looking across the valley, early-morning hikes along scenic trails, and lots of time to make music. At the end of the week they gave back to the community by playing three public concerts and performing for over 500 school children across Trinity County.
