Hello Taylor Nation!
It’s that time of the year again, and we’re thrilled that the redhead fiddle player named Caitlin Evanson is still alongside the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar. Happy Birthday, Cait!
Caitlin was born on February 26 in Seattle, Washington. She inherited her natural musical interest from her father who was a music professor. At age four she got a violin and she began to be classically trained eventually leading to studies under renown teachers such as Ivan Galamian (a colleague of Itzhak Perlman) and an assistant concert master position with the local youth symphony. But after listening to Pearl Jam, her musical inclinations changed completely.
After attending punk concerts by bands such as Bad Religion, Seven Year Bitch, and L7 and being bruised by the mosh pits of Seattle’s thriving grunge scene, Evanson’s artistic direction was never the same.
Cait is the fiddle player for The Agency and backup singer for the Sparkly Dressed. You can learn more about her on her own Agency Profile: Caitlin Evanson.
