BIOGRAPHY

One of Sharon Crumrine's earliest influences was Beethoven, whose music alternately rocks the world or moves listeners to tears with its dark lyrical beauty. She was also deeply affected by the Romantic Classical composers (Schubert, Rachmaninoff), Impressionistic composers, Middle Eastern modes, Tango and contemporary Rock. Betty Widerski's radically eclectic background (Classical gone Irish Punk/Rock/Improv) 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.
