Alice began serious classical violin studies at the age of five. She was a member of the award-winning Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra for ten years and has been a member of several professional string trios and quartets. As a student at Brown University, Alice studied classical violin with Lois Finkel. At Brown, Alice also discovered the world of fiddling and quickly became well-versed in multiple styles including Bluegrass, Old-Time, Western Swing and Irish. Alice spent several years as the fiddler for Boston-based Goodtime Stringband and currently plays with Toast & Jam and Crabgrass. She has played for many celebrations of all types is happy to help you select the perfect music for yours.
Alice played in a whole classical string quartet for my birthday party last July kind of at the last minute. There wasn't a lot of time for rehearsals, but she was enthusiastic, high energy, fun to work with, and a super violinist. She's got a great sound and we all had a wonderful time!
We've seen Alice perform a number of times with the band Toast and Jam. They're a very accomplished band, but Alice's fiddle playing brings it to another level. She's very skillful, a wonderful performer and a pure delight. She's always a big hit with the crowd. Highly recommended.
I am a wedding celebrant and always request Alice's services for those couples wanting a violinist (and in fact have suggested her to others who may not know it's what they want). She brings skill and sensitivity to the event and I plan to continue to recommend her to engaged couples or indeed anyone needing to engage a musician.
Alice Malone played a variety of bluegrass and old-time fiddle tunes with the band Crabgrass at the Wellfleet OysterFest, and it was a singular pleasure. Her tone was singing, sweet, and true. A terrifically appealing fiddler and a fine musician.
"Alice helped make a wonderful moment...a wonderful, memorable moment with a sound track...awesome!" -Valerie & Emily Whitcomb / Charlotte, Tennessee
Alice was great to work with! She is an excellent musician, so professional, while also being such a pleasure to be around. She worked with our musical choices and had some great things to add to it! I would recommend her to anyone needing a violinist for any event really....truly wonderful!
