Regina learned to play music as a young girl in New York, her parents buying her a violin on a trip to Bavaria. She continued her classical training until college but set the violin aside as she and her husband raised two sons. With the encouragement of family and friends, she again took up the violin in 2010. She became a member of the Lehigh Valley’s RTO (Really Terrible Orchestra) and eventually got to know and play along with some of the Celtic musicians who frequent Godfrey Daniels in Bethlehem. She participated in Irish seisiun playing for a few years, but was increasingly drawn to the energy and creativity of bluegrass. In 2014 she went to the Grey Fox Festival in the Catskills where she was inspired by both professional and amateur fiddlers. She (and the violin from her youth) are now happy to settle in with the citizens of Last Small Town to continue the musical journey the two of them began so many years ago. In their spare time, the two also make music with an acoustic trio, 99 Strings.
