Sarah The Fiddler
Sarah’s musical journey began at the age of 4 when she started violin lessons using the Suzuki Method. By the age of 6, she was introduced to fiddle music and began competing in fiddle contests all over New England. Her grandparents suggested having a signature look….so she was known as the girl with the little red hat. Eventually it was her playing that was being recognized as she won hundreds of competitions.
These contests and festivals instilled Sarah’s passion for old-time music as she learned and played along side some of the best old-tymers. Even her fiddle was given to her by New England fiddler Willie “Uncle Willie” Lapman and carries a history of over 200 years of song.
The moment her bow touches the strings, Sarah’s passion for music is evident. Combining her influences of Old-Time, Irish, World and Classical music, Sarah takes her audiences on a musical journey from old-time sing-alongs, to lively polkas and rousing reels. Sarah will be performing with her husband Keith DaSilva on drums, Joe Dziok on piano & accordion and special guest Will Gorry on guitar & mandolin. The influences of these four musicians makes for a high energy show loved by audiences of all ages.
