Jake Armerding - Fiddle | Mandolin

The Boston Globe calls violinist/composer Jake Armerding "the most gifted and promising songwriter to emerge from the Boston folk scene in years."

Armerding grew up playing classical violin and listening to 80's pop radio.  He developed these influences into a roots/neo-folk style he calls "organic music," which he composes and performs across the country with the assistance of insanely talented friends.  He has released five albums of original material, along with a new EP, Cellar Sessions, with his instrumental side project, The Fretful Porcupine.  

In his off-hours, Jake is a voracious baker, believing that bread is the key to solving all the world's conflicts.  No one is allowed to touch his sourdough starter.

Armerding recently logged his thousandth performance.  He has shared the stage with Bela Fleck, Nickel Creek, Josh Ritter, David Wilcox and Toad the Wet Sprocket.
