Raised on a rich blend of traditional musical styles, Mari Black burst onto the international stage when she became Scotland’s Glenfiddich Fiddle Champion, 2-time U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion, and 2-time Canadian Maritime Fiddle Champion – all within a three-year period! Multistyle fiddler Mari Black returns to the Festival and showcases her musical versatility with her band presenting concerts of energetic, eclectic fiddle music from all around the globe. Concerts feature Mari’s fresh dance-driven music that transcends any musical style, an innovative blend of Celtic, American, and Canadian fiddling, jazz, tango, klezmer, folk, original works, and more, all woven together into an engaging narrative. Joined today by guitarist Flynn Cohen and Justin Meyer on bass, Mari will take audiences on an unforgettable journey through the world of music, with many unexpected twists, fun background stories, and lots of toe-tapping for everyone!
