Tatiana Silver Hargreaves is a violin player from Oregon. She has steeped herself in the archives of Appalachian music, playing fiddle, banjo, and singing, drawing from her time spent with oldtime musicians such as Bruce Molsky, Paul Brown, John Hermann and Franklin George,as well as intensive studies of source recordings. A first prize winner at the Clifftop Appalachian Stringband Festival Fiddle Contest, she has also maintained her connection to classical, new acoustic, and bluegrass music. In both 2012 and 2013, Tatiana was selected to participate in the Acoustic Music Seminar at the Savannah Music Festival to collaborate with other young acoustic musicians and explore contemporary composition based on traditional genres. There, she met innovative bassist Ethan Jodziewicz, with whom she has been touring throughout the country. Tatiana currently studies music and ethnomusicology at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA.
