Before she opened her eyes or learned to talk, music was a part of her life. Maybe she fell in love with fiddling before she was born, the day her mother, eight months pregnant with her, competed in a fiddling contest. Aarun was taught suzuki violin at the age of 2, and never stopped learning! At 4 years old, Aarun won the Colorado State Small Fry Division. Soon after, she won an award for the "youngest fiddler" at the National Old-Time Fiddlers Contest. Aarun attended Denver School of the Arts High School in Denver, CO and majored in Orchestra. She got to experience many amazing things while being a part of the DSA family. In addition to being one of the top rated Orchestras in the state, they got to perform with Garrison Keillor at Boettcher Concert Hall for 'A Prairie Home Companion.' Aarun has studied under many award winning fiddlers including Wes Westmoreland, Randy Elmore, Katie Glassman, Lisa Barrett, Joey McKenzie and Jimmie Don Bates, as well as studying commercial music at South Plains College under the tutelage of Joe Carr (of the Country Gazette) and Cary Banks (of the Maines Brothers Band). Along with her 5 Colorado State champion titles, (and countless other state champion titles) Aarun has recently been awarded the title of 2011 National Young Adult Champion at the National Old-Time Fiddlers Contest in Weiser, ID. Recently, Aarun was awarded 1st place at the 2013 Arkansas State Fiddle Contest in the 'Traditional Old-Time' Division in Mountain View, AR. Aarun is currently living in Portland, OR where she plays with multiple bands, operates the graphic design company Innovative Formations, and is the founder and executive producer of the music documentary production company "Fiddle TV," in addition to touring with various bands and doing studio projects such as recording 59 fiddle songs to accompany the instructional Mel Bay book entitled "Anthology of Contest Fiddle Tunes." Jonathan Trawick grew up in the Ozark hills, floating the rivers, trapping fish, camping on the riverbanks, feeling the cool spring breeze on his arms and listening to the fiddle music his Grandpa passed on to his Dad. It wasn't until his days in college that he realized his passion for music and began playing the very music his Grandpa had loved. To date, his musical career has included working with many legendary fiddle players including 7 time World Champion and National Heritage Fellow, Jim 'Texas Shorty' Chancellor, Texas Fiddle Hall of Fame Member, Dale Morris, Jr. who will eternally be a member of Ray Price and the Cherokee Cowboys, Canadian legend and Grand North American Fiddle Champion, Calvin Vollrath, Canadian fiddling icon, April Verch, 3 time Grand Master Fiddle Champion, Matthew Hartz, Nashville session legend, Tim Crouch and more. Locally, he freelances and plays in several settings. When he is not playing with the terrific dance band, Well Swung, you may catch him performing with National Fiddle Champion, Aarun Carter or filling in on mandolin somewhere. Can you feel the warmth of the campfire yet? If you close your eyes while you listen, you may even be able to smell the wood burning and the creek rising....
