Aaron Fewkes – Meridian, ID

Aaron started playing the fiddle about 25 years ago largely because his older brother, Jason, had taken up the fiddle.  Aaron took lessons under the direction of Matthew Hartz and Danita Gardner and fiddle music soon became a passion.  Aaron has competed in numerous fiddle contests throughout the Northwest and was the 2006 Northwest Regional Young Adult champion.

Aaron’s favorite fiddlers include Orville Burns, James Chancellor, and Terry Morris.  Aaron  is currently the marketing director for Connections Credit Union and resides in Meridian with his wife, Alisa,  and two girls, Emily and Leah.

Philosophy:

What I like to hear in twin fiddles is solid harmony, intonation and hearing both players having fun.  Songs should be played within each player’s ability.  If all that comes together just right, then the audience hears it, the judges hear it, and excellent music is being enjoyed by all.
