LORETTA'S ARTIST OF WEEK 1/4/16
Bronwyn Keith‐Hynes is a Boston-based musician originally from Charlottesville, Virginia. Accepted on a scholarship to Berklee College of Music at age 16, she graduated in 2013 with a Professional Diploma in Violin Performance. Bronwyn is fast gaining recognition for her fiddling across bluegrass and acoustic music circles. Her playing, improvising, and writing are informed by her past six years of immersion in the Boston acoustic music scene and time spent studying traditional Irish, Scottish and Cape Breton music before moving to Boston.
Bronwyn has performed with Peter Rowan, The Milk Carton Kids, Anais Mitchell, Joe Pug and Tony Trischka, among others. Her current full-time project is with the progressive bluegrass band Mile Twelve. In 2014 Bronwyn won first place in the Walnut Valley Old Time Fiddle Championship in Winfield, KS and in 2015 won first place in the Freshgrass Fiddle Contest. Bronwyn has been on staff for the last two summers at Berklee College of Music teaching string lessons at The Five Week Program. She also teaches privately throughout the year in Boston, and world-wide via Skype.
