Introducing Van Diemen’s Fiddles!

A baroque violinist, a Klezmer fiddler and a Gyspy Jazz violinist walk into a bar…

We are proud to introduce our newest venture, the Van Diemen’s Fiddles! Julia Fredersdorff, Rachel Meyers and Charlie McCarthy are joining forces to explore fiddle playing from three completely different directions. From 13th century music, to contemporary music via British Taverns, Irish bars, and Nordic fjords, this unlikely threesome combine their own unique voices to create a new experimental sound full of improvisation and musical conversation.

To make it even more interesting, for their first gig, Van Diemen’s Fiddles will be impersonating three sheep in BAA-ROCK: A Gut-wrenching Musical Story for Children.
