About Martha

Martha is a New York City-based classical violinist and fiddler. Her most recent projects have included working with Sting on the world premiere run of his musical, The Last Ship, and performing with a British electronic pop group.

Martha has performed throughout the US and Europe in concerts and music festivals, and both her classical work and fiddling have been featured on public radio and television. She has given lectures, masterclasses, and workshops focusing on classical, Scottish, Appalachian/Old-time, Irish, bluegrass, Scandinavian, and improvisation.

Bridging the gap between the worlds of classical music and fiddle, Martha has actively pursued both paths since first picking up her instrument at the age of six. In 2013, she co-arranged a piece for bluegrass band and orchestra, which she performed with the Lawrence Symphony Orchestra last April.

She holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Violin Performance from Lawrence University with a minor in creative writing, where she studied under the instruction of Wen-Lei Gu. She also studied with Carol Cook, principal violist of the Lyric Opera of Chicago.
