     “… fiddler Ellen Carlson, whose sweet-toned instrument soars throughout this recording.”

    Steve Goldfield,
    Bluegrass Unlimited
    May 2008

    “This is a fine recording of varied music  that grows on the listener with each listening and is recommended to folks who like great fiddle, well-sung top-quality songs, and want something different out of life.”    -- Robert Buckingham, Bluegrass Unlmited, June 2013.  Complete Review.

    Ellen Carlson has been performing on fiddle for over thirty years and is dedicated to bringing the many forms of fiddle music to as many people as she can. Her program on Fiddle Styles is a perfect educational program for libraries, historical societies and schools.  She currently performs with the well reviewed acoustic roots band High Range, and can also be seen playing with Jim Prendergast in a folk/country/swing duo, plus playing Canadian tunes with Joe Deleault & Jim Prendergast, 40’s swing reunions with Sweet, Hot & Sassy, Irish/Old-time with the Grumbling Rustics, country & blues with Lonesome Train and with her brothers Darrell & Bruce, plus at numerous weddings, square dances and musicals.

    She runs a music camp (in it’s 15th year), the Fiddleheads Acoustic Music Camp and coaches the NH Fiddle Ensemble (www.fiddleheadscamp.com/Ensemble.html).  A highly sought-after teacher, Ellen teaches at the Grey Fox festival, Joe Val festival, Pemi Valley Festival, Fiddle Hell and is a certified Wernick Method Jam teacher.  Ellen is a member of the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts, Artist in Education Program. She would like to inspire people of all ages to play and to learn to enjoy the many facets of fiddling as well as making music together.

    “Music listening, performance, and composition engage nearly every area of the brain that we have so far identified, and involve nearly every neural subsystem.”

    “By better understanding what music is and where it comes from, we may be able to better understand our motives, fears, desires, memories, and even communication in the broadest sense.”

    This is Your Brain on Music, Daniel Levitin
