About the Event

Photo By Jason Jong Multistyle  violinist and champion fiddler MARI BLACK is rapidly building a  reputation as one of the most dynamic young artists of her generation.  Her energetic playing, engaging stage presence, and commitment to  bringing people together through music have made her a favorite with  audiences across the country and around the world. Equally at home in a  wide variety of musical traditions, Mari is the 2015/2013 U.S. National  Scottish Fiddle Champion, 2014 Glenfiddich Scottish Fiddle Champion,  2014/2012 Canadian Maritime Fiddle Champion, 2011 Canadian Novelty  Fiddle Champion, 1st Prize Winner at the 2010 American Protégé  International String Competition, and 2-time laureate at the American  String Teachers’ Association Alternative Styles Awards. On stage, she  creates shows that draw on elements from many different styles including  jazz, tango, folk, Western classical, as well as Celtic, American, and  Canadian fiddling. Her performances take listeners on a musical journey  exploring the diversity and celebrating commonalities in the  dance-driven folk musics of the world.
