VOCALS / VIOLIN / FIDDLE
TRADITIONAL & ORIGINAL
Link here to [weddings & events info/samples]
Waltzes and gentle folk melodies, as well as lively Celtic, Old-time/Southern, French Canadian, and Scandinavian fiddle tunes for all types of events. Original compositions add a unique wealth of material, in a traditional style.
I'm sensitive and experienced at playing music for theater productions, and can find the right sorts of tunes for a particular time and place.
My fiddle has a pleasant, clear tone, so it can fit into a calm atmosphere; or if the occasion calls for it, the fiddle can carry rollicking dance tunes over a long distance. My viola has a rich, colorful tone and cello-like projection.
I sing a cappella and also accompany myself on guitar.
I can sight-read sheet music and also learn by ear, and am very comfortable improvising.
I've performed and recorded tracks with singers and bands backing up their vocals, and enjoy doing that very much.
My original fiddle tunes can be licensed with a contract for recording and other media projects
