About

“The difference between a violin and a fiddle is that you can spill your beer on a fiddle.”

                                                                                                                               -Antonio Stradivari

I’ve spilled plenty of beer on my fiddle. I poured water out of it after sinking in the Mississippi.  I sweat on it, saw on it, and make it sing.  I play fiddle tunes from all sorts of cultures and traditions, but most enjoy improvising and working with others in various styles and art forms.

Lately I’ve spent a lot of time teaching, in particular for Frontier School Division.  I am experimenting with electric sounds and effects and have been playing for various folk/contra dances.  My most recent collaboration is on violin and cello with Montana Dad on his collection of songs titled “Fully Human Again”.  https://montanadad.bandcamp.com/releases

I’m taking bookings for classical violin and fiddle, and welcome any interest in collaboration – be it theatre, dance, burlesque, spoken word, kids music, literature, visual art or anything in between.
