ABOUT LYDIA CONWAY
From an early age I had a passion for music. I started violin with my elementary school program when I was 9. I convinced my parents to get me some private lessons, (I promised I would practice, and sometimes I did!). I grew up participating in the youth symphony program and school orchestra, choir, and even marching band (a story for another time). I stuck with it through the years and went on to earn a Master of Music degree from Colorado State University.
I've got a penchant for bluegrass and folk music and a history of performing at many a mountain wedding. One thing I enjoy most is sharing in the community music creates. Prior to moving to Montana, I worked as Educational Programming Director at the Omaha Conservatory of Music. Now I am focused on building my online video series and notation PDFs, while raising my two children alongside my husband in the valley of the peaceful Mission Mountains in Western Montana.
I am an active member of the Montana State Old-Time Fiddle Association and have lots of ideas that I hope to bring to fruition to help further and preserve the art and tradition of fiddle music. Thanks for joining me on the journey!
