Amy Cann fiddle facultyAmy Cann spent the first twenty years of her life becoming a violinist and the next ten becoming a fiddler. The first began in the excellent public schools of upstate NY and continued through a Bachelors in Strings/Pedagogy from the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam; the second with an apprenticeship at the elbow of Jay Ungar then a journeyman stint through hundreds of contradances, kitchen junkets, and pub sessions throughout the northeast. These days she's a church organist, dance caller, music theater director, Suzuki camp clinician, and piano/theory teacher -- but what she loves best is to sit squarely on the fence between the classical and trad world and help folks climb over from either side.
