Hey everyone! I am so sorry. I am still out of it from NCFCA. I totally forgot about Groundhog’s Day yesterday but from what I heard, the groundhog did predict another 6 weeks of winter.
Any way, today I would like to tell you about one of the greatest violin players of today, Lindsy Sterling. SHE IS AMAZING! Here is her bio. (I didn’t write it. The link will follow it if you want to look yourself.) 🙂
Lindsey Stirling (born on September 21, 1986) is an American violinist, musician, dancer, performance artist, and composer. In 2010 she competed on the fifth season of America’s Got Talent. Stirling is noted for her versatility performing music from country to hip hop.
At the age of 23 Stirling was a quarter-finalist on the fifth season of America’s Got Talent where she was known as the ‘Hip Hop Violinist’. After Stirling’s performance, Sharon Osbourne said, “Wow… we love you Lindsey!” and Piers Morgan called her performance “Electrifying!”.
At the age of 5, after being influenced by the classic music records played by her father, Stirling requested the opportunity to learn and play the violin.
Stirling was classically trained through private lessons for 12 years. When she was 16, she joined a rock band with four friends called Stomp on Melvin. As part of her experience with Stomp on Melvin, Stirling wrote a solo violin rock song, and her performance helped her to win both the title of Arizona’s Jr. Miss in 2005 and the talent category of the National Jr. Miss Pageant.
