MEET THE MUSICIANS
Violinist Megan Drollinger
Megan Drollinger is a classically trained violinist originating from the heartland. Influenced by her father and sister, she began her musical journey at the age of four. Growing up she studied the Suzuki Method on violin at a local private music school while also learning fiddle tunes by ear from her father. Being a seventh generation fiddle player, she is honored to continue the tradition. Since moving to the mountains of North Carolina, she has felt inspired to weave together these two worlds. Blending her technical skill and knowledge with her love of traditional folk music, she strives to create a rich sound with informed harmonies that takes the listener on a journey within.
Cellist Emmalee Hunnicutt
Classically trained from a young age, Emmalee has been making music for as long as she can remember. In 2010, she graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in music, and has been playing professionally for 13 years. She currently plays with two area symphonies and with various ensembles spanning many genres. In addition to performing, Emmalee also composes and improvises on the cello. Combining technical skill with expressivity, she strives to create deeply felt experiences for her listeners. She finds great inspiration from the mountains and forests of this region, and is grateful to live in the midst of such beauty.
