Erynn Marshall

Erynn Marshall has carved out a niche for herself as an old-time fiddler in North America and abroad. She has played for over thirty years, performed in the US, Canada and England and learned about old-time music by visiting such old-time fiddlers as Melvin Wine, Lester McCumbers, Leland Hall, Art Stamper, J.P.Fraley, and Clyde Davenport. She wrote Music in the Air Somewhere (a book on West Virginia fiddle and song traditions), filmed an instructional fiddling DVD, and recorded four CDs: Calico, Meet Me in the Music, Shout Monah (with the Haints) and Tune Tramp, which features 45 traditional musicians from across North America. Erynn has won many awards including a prestigious first place in fiddle at Clifftop, the Appalachian Stringband Festival in West Virginia, and was both the first woman and first non-American-born person to do so (Erynn grew up in Canada). For five years she directed the concert series at the Blue Ridge Music Center in Galax, Virginia where she still lives. Erynn often performs as a duo with husband Carl Jones, and also with the Bowbenders - an old-time stringband featuring Erynn, Carl, Kenny Jackson and Bobb Head. She has taught at numerous music camps, including the Swannanoa Gathering, Augusta Heritage Center, Sore Fingers, the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes, Midwest Banjo Camp, and Suwannee Banjo Camp.
