Molly Tucker is a fiddler, composer, and educator based in Boston. While she grew up in southern California studying classical violin, she spent a great deal of her childhood listening to and playing New England 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 plays in folk duo Casey Murray & Molly Tucker, with whom she has performed across the Northeast in listening rooms, theaters, and dance halls, playing original and traditional fiddle tunes. She is also a member of improvising string quartet, Quartet Davis, which plays original compositions in blues-based and folk styles and has performed and taught across the Northeast and Midwest and in Amman, Jordan. She loves sharing the joy of musical discovery through teaching, whether teaching private students, workshops, or at fiddle camps.
