Amy McNally (also known as Amy McFiddler) is that chick in a skirt and no shoes who sits on the floor with a violin and a stash of Pixy Stix. Yeah, that one, with the hair. She's been hanging around jam circles like that for 13 years, and has been playing fiddle for over 25 years now. She plays with The Tooles, The Mad City Jug Band, Wild Mercy, and Play It With Moxie. Singing with Lady Mondegreen, performing guerrilla accompaniment, and on recordings with Seanan McGuire, Adam Selzer, and other assorted musicians and rogues, she does folk, Celtic, historical, and filk music. She was awarded a Best Performer Pegasus for her solo work, and one for playing with Wild Mercy, and last year, an album she accompanied, Wicked Girls, was up for a Best Related Work Hugo Award. She currently lives in the Midwest, and likes Doctor Who, sugar, roller coasters, single malt, books, and pie, although maybe not all at once.
Her first solo album, Hazardous Fiddle, is out now.
