Ginger Ibex makes use of strings, piano, and percussion along with a wealth of ethnic influences and selected classical chops to create a sound that is as hard to classify as it is beguiling.Pianist Sharon Crumrine's earliest influences was Beethoven, and also the Romantic & Impressionistic composers, Middle Eastern modes, Tango and contemporary Rock. Mezzo-violist Betty Widerski's radically eclectic background and endless creative & technical ability on a wild variety of stringed instruments, plus some percussion added to the mix, give Ginger Ibex a powerful yet lyrical sound. Melika Fitzhugh's wide range of instrumental skills (including violin, guitar, percussion & bass) plus her love of Balkan music in odd meters make her ready for any musical style Ginger Ibex explores.
