Roz has been warbling and whirling to music since she was hatched. Music and dance make up the essential fiber of her being. While her father was trained as classical violinist and her grandfather an opera singer, her childhood, was steeped in the belly of Rhythm & Blues and Texas Swing. Hours of dervish-like spinning to the fiddling of Billy Spears propelled her into learning to play the fiddle. The momentum hasn't stopped. While pursuing a career as a professional dancer she has played fiddle across the continent and throughout the British Isles. She has sung and played fiddle in bands featuring Reggae, Old Time, Swing, Folkgrass and the Blues. Combining fiddle and vocals with storytelling, she has tickled the fancy of children and the inner child of many adults. There's a reason they call it "playing music", it's all about the joy.
Few things in life have the magic of singing harmony or playing twin fiddle with someone. When it works, there’s nothing like it. For me, it’s medicine for the soul.
Over the years I’ve had the great pleasure of making music with good friends in bands and jam sessions. Whether it be Old Time, British Isles, Blues, Folkgrass, or Swing, I enjoy it all.
Most recently, I have been crafting sound in the Meadowlark String Band. As a dynamic duo, we offer lively renditions of Old Time, Swing, and original music with vocals, fiddle, guitar and banjo.
