Fiddler Ethan Hazzard-Watkins performs traditional and original music with infectious energy, passion, and grace. Ethan’s fiddling combines expressive subtlety, playfulness, and compelling rhythmic power born out of more than two decades of experience as a dance musician. Ethan is equally at home digging into an Irish, Quebecois, or New England fiddle tune, improvising on a classic blues, swing, or honky-tonk song, or interpreting a lyrical waltz or English Country Dance melody. Based in Brattleboro, Vermont, Ethan has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad with Elixir and The Figments, and performs closer to home with honky-tonk band The Rear Defrosters. Since 2019 Ethan has also worked as a psychotherapist at a community mental health agency and in private practice.
