I’ve played several shows and festivals with Alice Marie - she is always prepared and punctual. She can handle any tune from “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” to Latin Jazz and Celtic, even Classical. She has mastered the rich tonal warmth of the violin as well as the raw gutsy timbre of the fiddle. I can’t wait to work with her again!
