Hailed by a class of 2nd graders as “wreely nice and kind” and “the coolest man on erth,” Arizona native Taylor Morris enjoys blurring the line between violin and fiddle. After studying classical violin at Arizona State University with Dr. Katie McLin, he spent four years touring the world as one of five fiddlers with “Barrage,” a Canadian-based, world music violin troupe. His travels, both with Barrage and personally, have led to performances in 47 states and 13 countries with musicians from a multitude of backgrounds. Off of the stage, Taylor obtained a master's in education from Harvard University and is a passionate advocate for arts education. He currently serves as a founding co-director of the Gilbert Town Fiddlers, runs a summer camp for young musicians called StringPlay, and regularly works with students and educators to explore the incredible variety of ways to make music with string instruments.
