Sprung from the music of southern Appalachia, Julian is a free-spirited violinist who spins deep tone with modern ease. Awarded the 2016 Fresh Grass Fiddle Award and winner of the 2017 RockyGrass fiddle competition, Julian has toured extensively with cellist Ben Sollee and progressive bluegrass outfit Front Country.
Julian spent his childhood surrounded by many iconic acoustic musicians in Asheville NC including fiddler Bobby Hicks – whose smooth and lush sound has had a big impact on Julian’s playing. Now residing in Boston and a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music, Julian has been honored with the 2016 Fletcher Bright Award and Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival’s 2015 Bill Vernon Memorial Scholarship.
Julian is often found, teaching at camps, recording, subbing with artists such as Molly Tuttle and The Stash Band, and has performed at many notable festivals including: Winnipeg and Calgary Folk festivals, Merlefest, Fresh Grass, and Rocky Mountain Folk Festival. Drawn by his love of improvising and the inherent expressiveness of acoustic music, Julian is a nuanced tune-writer and recently released his debut album of bluegrass inspired instrumentals in May 2019.
Live shows will be looking a little different in order to do our part with social distancing while still filling the space we have available efficiently. The garage door at the rear of our stage will remain open during all performances so that you can enjoy the show from inside our venue space OR in our outdoor courtyard. Tickets will be sold as table reservations. There are tables for groups of 2,3,4,6, and 8 people. You must purchase the entire table in order to make a table reservation. We do not issue physical tickets; however, your name will be on a guest list when you arrive for the show. If you are arriving at a different time than the rest of your party be sure they know the last name that you made the table reservation under. You can use the graphic below to see the layout of our space and the description of different seating options.
