Evan Meeker grew up in Evergreen, Colorado, where he began his study of Texas-style Fiddle. Soon after, he became a fixture in the contest and fiddle community in Colorado. He has won many contests and is a past Young Adult Champion at the Colorado Fiddle Championships. Evan’s main early influence was Chris Daring, but he has listened closely to many others.
Now twenty-five years old, Evin lives in Austin, Texas, where he continues to be active in fiddling as a contestant and judge. He considers his biggest influence in fiddling to be Jimmie Don Bates (Austin, Texas), but has also gained inspiration from players like Tom Weisgerber and Wes Westmoreland, to name a few. Evan very much looks forward to coming back to Colorado each year for what he refers to as, “the most awesome contest,” and to see his Colorado fiddle friends for the weekend.
