Fiddle Music Magic featuring Nigel Armstrong
Nigel Armstrong is emerging as a dynamic and creative artist both within and beyond the realm of classical music. From his musical beginnings as a member of “The Little Fiddlers” in Sonoma, CA, to collaborations with tango musicians in Argentina he’s enjoyed using the violin in a versatile manner throughout his life. Nigel enjoys playing “fiddle music” of various sorts …exploring different traditions of musical expression such as jazz, fiddle, and tango. He and his friends will be “happy to include the bluegrass sound-world” in this benefit for the Santa Cruz Symphony League.
In 2000, at the age of 9, Nigel was the recipient of the 2nd prize in the Cloverdale Annual Old Time Fiddle Contest’s Waltz Division and in 2008 he performed an arrangement of Johnny Cash’s Orange Blossom Special with the Bozeman Symphony. During a recent recital tour of Argentina he performed a program of jazz and tango arrangements alongside more traditional classical works.
Nigel Armstrong is currently the Concert Master for the Santa Cruz Symphony.
