Bonnie Zahnow

Bonnie started playing old time fiddle in the mid 1980s, working since then as a support staffer at the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes. There she has learned from and played with dozens of tradition bearers over the years, including Joe & Odell Thompson, Bruce Greene, Melvin Wine, and Ralph Blizard. At home in Seattle she teaches private lessons and plays regularly at concerts, dances, bars, community centers, and twice a week for preschool kids, often with her husband, WB Reid.
