Rachel Eddy

Singing workshop / jam

Old-time jam

started playing the fiddle as a little girl. Pretty soon she realized that it was more fun making old time string band music than just about anything else. Rachel now performs on fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin and bass. She has recently relocated back to West Virginia after living the last 5 years in Stockholm. 

She has taught fiddle, banjo and guitar at the Augusta Heritage Center in Elkins WV, at Sore Fingers Summer school in the UK, and different various weekend workshops from the hills of West Virginia to Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, London and Wales. 

She enjoys teaching future generations about the unique music that she loves so much. Rachel’s love of music comes from the heart and she loves every part of her job, from performing to educating dedicated students, and the electrifying charge of leading large jam sessions around the world!  

Over the years, she has had the honor of sharing stages, workshops and recording sessions with the likes of Tim O’Brien, Erynn Marshall, Dirk Powell, Adam Hurt, Rayna Gellert, Russ Barenberg, Bruce Molsky, Mark Schatz, and a month long tour in Germany with the g’earls from Uncle Earl!
