Molly Tucker is a fiddler, composer, and educator based in Boston. Growing up studying classical violin, she spent a great deal of her childhood listening to and playing fiddle tunes and awaiting the next contra dance. With a love for many styles including New England, Celtic, and Old Time, her fiddling is sonorous, yet full of energy and groove. She performs regularly with folk and contra dance duo Casey Murray & Molly Tucker as well as improvising string quartet, Quartet Davis, which plays original compositions in blues-based and folk styles. She loves sharing the joy of musical discovery through teaching, whether teaching private students, workshops, or at fiddle camps.
