A violinist since the age of 7, Bronwen went to Loyola University, New Orleans on scholarship studying music therapy and violin performance. Though the classical music program was rigorous, she was enchanted in her off hours to experience the panoply of musical styles which surrounded her in New Orleans. She found herself playing in a gothic band, jamming with Irish musicians in a favorite pub when “Lord of the Dance,” came through town, and, with platinum blond hair and green fingernails, was noticeably the only white singer in the Loyola U. gospel choir. In the years to follow she focussed less on her classical roots, preferring instead to learn more and more about the seemingly vastly different styles of music, in some cases pioneering ways a violin could fit into each genre. From her history of award-winning classical violinist to purple-haired fiddling street performer, Bronwen now understands much more than how to play an instrument. She understands music at its’ root. It is this understanding that makes every kind of music and instrument graspable… simple. Like the outlines in a fine sketch, it all becomes different accents to the white, silent space. For the past decade Bronwen has played professionally in classical, rock, Celtic, bluegrass, folk, and alternative ensembles in clubs, cafe’s, festivals, recording studios, and on tour locally and nationally.
