musical performance for your event
Wherever you gather, whether stationary or meandering Vi’s concerts and presentations are a delight. She is a warm and personable musician, a former children’s entertainer, a musical saw player and fiddler. She takes time to respond to those listening and are curious about the saw.
By applying her magic touch and a cello bow, she creates a very unique sound, you might say cutting edge music. She plays vintage tunes, jazz and classical pieces creating smooth, sometimes unearthly music on her Saw. Often unaccompanied, but sometimes with an ensemble, you will hear joyous, brooding, sultry, stirring and familiar music. She has performed across the Northeast and locally at theaters, museums and gallery openings; on the streets of Northampton, Greenfield, Shelburne Falls; in churches, hospitals, with orchestras, and a variety of bands and ensembles.
