Mary Agnes Kennedy: (fiddle player, fiddle teacher, mandolin, vocals) the four members of Fiddle Earth all did personality tests and I was the only extrovert of the group. I picked up the fiddle after ten years of piano lessons with the very wonderful Sisters of Providence in Kingston, Ontario. From the sisters I learned music theory and how to read music. (I am very thankful for what they taught me!) I enjoyed playing the piano but it is a very solidary instrument and hard to carry to the campfire and music events — from holding the violin for the first time when I was twenty — I was hooked. I love all kinds of music and I especially love sharing the music I can play with others. Watching people sing and dance and laugh and cry as I play is something that moves my soul. I tell really bad jokes and as the extrovert they make me do it. If you have any really bad ones please send them to me. I also love playmobil and teach fiddle at Renaissance School of Music and privately from home.
