7_14_18_AnnieCollinWedding_2643Bellingham, WA is where I grew up, though I have strong ties to New England after living in Western Massachusetts for five years.  I started contra dancing at about eight years of age, and shortly thereafter took up fiddle, receiving classical training as well. Growing up in the local folk community was so important to me and has been the single most influential experience of my life.

I’m currently relocating to the Washington, D.C. area to further pursue music, dance, and cultural opportunities!
