ABOUT

Hey everyone!
My name is Mhairi and I have been playing the fiddle/violin since I was 7 years old! I began with learning classical violin which set a great foundation for my technique and music theory. When I was in grade 8 I joined a group called the north shore Celtic ensemble where I learnt everything there is to know about Celtic fiddling. With the NSCE, I performed countless gigs and toured all over Canada and internationally including performing in Quebec, the maritimes/PEI, Scotland and the US.
I also learnt how to play the ukelele as a kid and continue to play to this day, however not as intensely as the violin.
I have also recently began learning the guitar and can play the mandolin nearly as well as the fiddle (it has the same fingering).
I learn music primarily by ear however can also sight read and write music.
