While rooted in Texas style fiddling and bluegrass, Natalie’s styles reach far beyond. In 2011, she released “Fiddle and Flute,” a traditional Irish music album that has been critically acclaimed and aired worldwide. In May of 2017 she released her first solo album of original music, “Paths and Places,” produced by Joe K. Walsh, with guests including Darol Anger! Her band, Masontown released “In This Time” October of 2017, with tracks of oldtime and original songs heavily arranged in the modern acoustic quartet. Studying classical violin almost as long as fiddle, Natalie holds a bachelor degree in violin performance from the University of Northern Colorado. She is currently the Associate Concertmaster of the Greeley Philharmonic orchestra, and played with the National Repertory Orchestra, Breckenridge Music Festival, Colorado Music Festival, Colorado Bach Ensemble, Boulder Philharmonic, and Sphere Ensemble.
Natalie is the professor of fiddle at University of Northern Colorado’s new Folk & Bluegrass Studies Program. She has a large studio of private students, and has taught at many summer camps including Brian Wicklund’s Fiddle Pal Camp, Fiddlestar Fiddle Camp, FY5 Bluegrass Camp, Montana Fiddle Camp, A Midsummer’s Day Dream Camp, and Scale the Summit Music Camp. While not teaching or performing, Natalie can be found enjoying Colorado’s hills and mountains.
