Hire Hillary or one of the groups with whom she plays. Versatile, and willing to go the extra mile to suit the needs and desires of the client. Reads sheet music and plays by ear. Fiddle, mandolin, violin, viola, and djembe. Bluegrass, country, classical, Old-time, or Celtic.
Hillary actually took time to learn a couple of songs (by ear!) to play for your daughter's wedding, including a Monty Python number to which she walked down the aisle! She works hard to make sure go give her client what she needs.
We have seen Hillary at the National Banana Pudding Festival in 2014. She is a spirited and gifted performer with wonderful engaging energy with the audience. She played fiddle, and lead contra dances with the audience. And getting them up off their seat was not easy!!
Hillary was an amazing fiddler at my recent event. She is a professional and caring person and will make your event special.
Price Range: (phone number hidden)
What to Expect
I will arrive at the venue at least twenty minutes before showtime, and I will play for the agreed upon amount of time. I will take care of contacting and paying other musicians (if you are interested in hiring others).
My name is Hillary Bevels, and I am a freelance musician. My main instrument is fiddle, and I am the National Buckdancing Champion. Other instruments I play include the mandolin, viola, and djembe. I play many styles of music with many different groups at different levels of professionalism. I also teach, write, and record. I am very versatile. Whatever you're looking for, I can oblige. I play bluegrass, Old-time, folk, country, Americana, classical, and Celtic. If you would like to hire one of the groups with whom I play:
Rick Taylor Band: 5 piece Americana/ acoustic/ country music
Stillwater Bluegrass: 5 piece high and lonesome bluegrass music
Michael and Hillary Duo: straight ahead Old-time music
Ben and Hillary Duo: Celtic/ Old-time/ folk music
String quartet: 4 piece classical for weddings, funerals, etc.
(however many classical musicians you would like to hire for your event, I'd be happy to oblige. We can play as a trio or duo if you would like).
Just a little bit about myself. I've been playing music for nine years, and I've been teaching for six. I've been dancing for fifteen years, and I have a student who has won a State championship. I have a degree in English, and I am getting married soon.
