Instructor: Amy Alvey


Amy Alvey tours nationally and internationally with her duo Golden Shoals and has taught fiddle at Blackpot Camp, Dare to Be Square DMV, the Bellingham Folk Festival, and at the Dorrigo Folk School in Australia.

Amy started playing violin 22 years ago, playing in orchestras in Southern California until she discovered old time and bluegrass fiddling while attending Berklee College of Music in Boston. In 2011 she graduated with a Bachelor's of Music in Violin Performance, studying with modern innovators of acoustic music such as Matt Glaser, Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky, Eugene Friesen, John McGann, and Mimi Rabson. Amy dedicates most of her summers traveling to different fiddler's conventions and has taken high ribbons at prestigious old time fiddle contests, notably 2nd place at Clifftop, 5th place at Mount Airy, and 10th place at Galax.
