When she was four years old, Holly discovered an old fiddle in her grandmother’s closet, and she knew from then on that she wanted to play it. She started taking lessons at the age of 8 and has now been playing the violin for 14 years, obtaining a well rounded education in many different genres of music, ranging from classical to fiddle.

Her passion lies with Irish fiddle music, although she also many other styles, and placed in the top 5 multiple times in the California State Old-time Fiddle Championships.

Holly has been teaching violin/fiddle for seven years and has had the pleasure of studying under and playing with many great musicians including Alasdair Fraser, Natalie Haas, and Harald Haugaard.
