Rachel Rocks Out

Posted at 7:17 AM on November 15, 2008 by Gillian Martin (1 Comments)

Violinist Rachel Barton Pine is a distinguished classical musician--but she's also a metal head, as you can see from her website. In concert she's performed her arrangements of songs by Ozzy Osborne, Metallica and Black Sabbath, among others.

I came across this video of her performing Pantera's "Cowboys from Hell" in a faculty concert at Mark O'Conor's Strings Conference this summer. The cellist is Mike Block. You'll have to imagine the fog and the laser show yourself.

Thanks to blabbermouth.net for the video.
