For twenty years violinist/fiddler and composer Andrew Finn Magill has been pursuing parallel careers in traditional Irish music, Brazilian choro, jazz and American fiddle, the result of many years living abroad and a childhood growing up at The Swannanoa Gathering in Asheville, North Carolina. He now takes his folk background and his exploration of Brazilian music to create “uncharted territory for both the violin and Brazilian music.”(Bandsintown)
Andrew has performed with top-notch musicians from grammy-nominees Trio Brasileiro to Rising Appalachia. He has been featured on NPR, MTV, Avianca in-flight entertainment, is a Fulbright Fellow, 2019 North Carolina Arts Council Grant recipient for jazz composition and has over a million Spotify streams.
He has been an ambassador of Brazilian violin ever since and has founded many Brazilian music groups including O Finno, Violino no Choro, Brazilian Strings Trio (with fellow American violinist Ted Falcon and Brazilian guitarist Nando Duarte) and Canta, Violino! the album of which was released on Ropeadope Records in 2018.
