Well versed in a variety of fiddle traditions including Old-Time, Bluegrass, Scottish and Canadian styles, Rachel Baiman is a versatile and dynamic musician. Rachel is a winner of the Midwestern Fiddle Championships as well as a two time winner of the Illinois State fiddle Championship and a second place winner of the 2012 Nashville Grand Masters Fiddle Championship in the “Traditional Styles” category. Her love for folk and acoustic music inspired a move to Nashville in 2008, where she earned degrees in Music and Anthropology at Vanderbilt University.
Baiman’s 2017 label debut Shame was featured on NPR’s “Songs We Love”, called a “Rootsy Wake-up Call” by Folk Alley, and described by Vice’s “Noisey” as “flipping off authority one song at a time.” It was nominated for the Independent Music Awards Americana Album of the Year, and was the recipient of the Indie Acoustic Award’s Americana Album of the Year award. Her followup Thanksgiving is an intriguing follow up to Shame, allowing her a chance to stretch out stylistically, moving effortlessly between bluegrass, to bolk, old-time and country. The 4 song project features special guests Molly Tuttle (with whom she toured the UK with in 2018), and Josh Oliver (of Mandolin Orange). The bittersweet lyricism she’s become known for conveys the push and pull of hardship and hope we often feel during the holiday season.
