Who is the Blue Violin?
Raised on a ranch in Northeastern Iowa, the Blue Violin is a conservatory trained, rock and roll violin virtuoso. Playing electric and acoustic violin, the Blue Violin’s breathy sound captures the beauty of artists such as Bethel Music, while his unrelenting rhythmic improvisation and multi-tracking leaves audiences breathless from his arrangements of Lizzo, Sam Smith, Lady Gaga, and One Republic, and his own original works.
Christmas by Candlelight – Bring in the holiday season with award-winning classical crossover artist, Blue Violin, for a series of intimate performances, as he shares a very personal approach to electric and acoustic violin playing alongside stories of travels around the globe.
Former 1st violinist of the Boston String Quartet, Blue Violin performs original music and covers in a multimedia format, all using a single violin. Imagine the production of Lindsey Stirling with the virtuosity of David Garrett.
Blue Violin has performed as soloist with the Xibus World Orchestra, Ethno-Urban Orchestra, and has performed with John Mayer, Paul Simon, Jennifer Holliday, the Turtle Island Quartet, and members of Celtic Woman and Riverdance.
