West Seattle Fiddler at Washington Management

West Seattle Fiddler Dawn Hepburn violinist "I played violin as a child and am grateful for a classical foundation including many years of Bach. Bluegrass taught me how to collaborate and read the room; Irish taught me how to keep time! Family tragedy taught me the power of fiddling in an ICU setting. Music volunteering has taught me joy." (Washington Management)

I call myself Vightingale because one of the features of my act is whistling, but I also play Harmonium (a lap instrument like an organ with bellows you play from the back), Ukulele, sing (often wordlessly) kazoo, & I use shakers on my feet for some rhythm. I have a lot of fun playing & people seem to enjoy what I do." (Homebridge)
