The Boston Globe calls composer-violinist Jake Armerding "a master at bending boundaries." He grew up playing classical violin, listening to 80's pop radio and performing in his dad's bluegrass band, and he describes his music today as "Mozart through a loop pedal," basically a fusion of those three genres. Over the course of 2000 performances, he has shared the stage with Bela Fleck, Nickel Creek, Josh Ritter, David Wilcox and Toad the Wet Sprocket.
He lives in Minneapolis.
