Beginning only with a familiar tune, DeGraff and Morris improvise as they go, blending the traditional, the unwritten, and the spontaneous in performances that range from Bach to bluegrass. Each a consummate concert artist in his own right, DeGraff and Morris bring to the stage a level of technique matched only by their heartfelt passion and daredevil, off-the-cuff, improvisational risk-taking.

The duo continues to mystify audiences as they blur stylistic lines, transcend musical genres and bring energy and a tasteful touch of humor to each performance.

Although both come from different sides of the musical tracks, Pianafiddle brings together the best of all musical worlds. With countless performances, five CDs, and a full-length concert DVD to their credit, Pianafiddle continues to engross its fans with traditionally grounded yet spontaneous musical creations that unfold on stage, differently every time.
