Trained in classical violin for the first decade and a half of my life, I studied violin as an instrument intensively. Since moving from the classical music world into traditional music, I've traveled to many places with rich fiddle traditions, immersing in the tunes and styles of Ireland, Scotland, Appalachia and New England. I love the fun of ragtime tunes and sappy waltzes from the 20s, as well as haunting Kentucky tunes, strathspeys from the rocky ledges of northern Scotland, and slippery jigs from West coast Ireland. I have also developed a crankie habit! They're super fun to make and perform. See a video of one at the bottom of this page.
I play for dances, weddings, house concerts, funerals, parties, re-enactment events and more.
