Andy Reiner, an award-winning fiddler, composer, and educator, began playing at age five with the Reiner Family Band. He has since developed his own style featuring creative, rhythmic melodies and thoughtful fusing of world styles. He produces and hosts River of Suck podcast, interviewing musicians, scientists and more. Many of Andy's string orchestra works, fiddle tunes, and songs are influenced by mountains and nature. Also known as the "Skiing Fiddler," Andy skis every month of the year and has skied while playing the fiddle top to bottom on double black diamond runs at Silverton, CO and Mt. Baker, WA. He plays his fiddle on 14,000' mountain summits with his wife and musical partner, cellist Dr. Joy Adams, of Half Pelican.
