Bronnie Griffin is a contemporary fiddler steeped in the rich Irish tradition. As a prize winning student of the legendary Kevin Burke, Bronnie learned her Irish from the best. She received a classical training tempered by a sojourn in Bluegrass and Old Time, then broadened her already considerable abilities by going to the well of the tradition. She spent over ten years in Ireland busking and listening to the great tune keepers and lore masters. Back in the USA, Bronnie performed with Gerry O’Beirne, John Williams and Kevin Burke, among others. Today Bronnie lives in Portland, Oregon, where Celtic music flourishes, enriched by the vibrant and eclectic world scene, all reflected in her effervescent playing. With one stellar album under her belt, and another forthcoming, Bronnie Griffin brings a strong bow, melodic lift, and sheer joy to the world of traditional music.
Bronnie is available for concerts and festivals as a duo with guitarist/singer Cary Novotny, or with the Bronnie Griffin Band.
