Keith-Hynes is an award-winning fiddler from Charlottesville, Virginia. She began
fiddling at the age of three and has studied with many wonderful musicians on the
folk music scene including Beth Telford, Jerry Holland, Cleek Schrey, Matt Glaser,
John McGann and Darol Anger. Bronwyn is a fluent player of Irish, Cape Breton, Scottish
and American traditional music. She has performed throughout the U.S, Ireland and
France and has traveled to Ireland extensively to study with local traditional musicians.
She has been featured on Irish RTE One television and the Irish Comhaltas Live Programme.
At the age of sixteen she was awarded a scholarship to attend Berklee College of
Music in Boston, where she is currently in her final year.
Bronwyn has won numerous fiddle
contests in Irish and Scottish fiddle styles. In 2006 at the age of fourteen, Bronwyn
placed third in the Open Division of the U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Championship.
She holds the 2007 Virginia State Fiddle Champion title and has also won at the
2008 and 2009 Mid-West Fleadh Cheoil fiddle competition.
Bronwyn performs frequently at Berklee and around the Boston area. She performed
with Mark O'Connor at the Berklee Performance Center in 2009 and was featured in
the Fall 2010 String Showcase held at the Berklee Performance Center. She is part
of the group Atlantic Seaways, which is a collaboration of young traditional American
and Scottish musicians from Berklee, Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Dance in
Glasgow and Strathclyde University in Glasgow. In 2011 they performed in Lorient,
France at the Inter-Celtic Festival. In March 2012 she went on tour in France with
the international Irish music and dance show Celtic Dances, run by music directors
Liz Knowles and Kieran O'Hare. In addition to being a highly accomplished performer, Bronwyn is also a skilled
group and private teacher. She taught at the 2010 Kanack School Fiddle Camp and
currently teaches privately in Boston.
In her hometown, Koitiata, New
Zealand, Catherine (BB) began her musical studies with banjo tutor, Mark Warren.
A few years later she received the Frank Winter memorial award at the Auckland Folk
Festival to travel to the USA and study with world renowned banjo players Tony Trischka,
Alan Munde and Bill Evans. She won the Uncle Dave Macon banjo competition in Murfreesboro,
Tennessee at just 15 years old and came runner up in the Rockygrass bluegrass banjo
contest in Colorado. In 2007, she was invited to join Colorado bluegrass band, Long
Road Home, for their tour of summer festivals in the USA. BB has performed throughout
New Zealand and Australia with the bluegrass band, Twisted Oak, in a banjo duet
with tenor banjoist, Alex Borwick and most recently with Cy Winstanley and Vanessa
McGowan in their country/bluegrass trio, ‘Sandpaper Tango’. In 2010,
she recorded her debut album, Village Green, which features original compositions
and collaborations with some of the best acoustic musicians from all around NZ.
BB travelled on a Massey University scholarship in 2011 to study at the Miles Davis
program in Jazz studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. This
year, BB has completed her BMus in Jazz performance at the NZ school of music, being
the first person to be accepted on the banjo.
