[Editor’s note: this is the first of a series of weekly posts featuring oldtime musicians from around the world. Each post will include a brief profile of the musicians, a video with an interview and a tune, as well as links to any of their other activities they’d like to share.]
Megan grew up playing classical violin, from 4th grade through high school, and, after putting her violin down for over a decade, she picked it up again to learn to play the fiddle. She wishes she’d discovered old time earlier — because just imagine how many more tunes she’d know if she’d had that extra decade of practice! — but she looks forward to the decades of learning to come! When she’s not fiddling, Megan is working as a content strategist, trying to pick up some banjo, and animating in her spare time.
