Rachel started with a Suzuki violin.  She also attended fiddle camps all through school and took lessons with several amazing fiddlers including Suzy Thompson and Darol Anger. She participated and played violin in her local school and youth orchestras. She picked up the viola in middle school when an orchestra teacher offered it as a challenge.

Rachel moved to Portland in 2008, where she began playing with Kendálin. Soon after she began  writing fiddle tunes, including the one named for her cat, “Littles”, which appears on her first CD.
Have a great week, and we’ll see ya there!
