Adam Bern

Adam likes to think of himself as a musical chameleon. He is an up-and-coming, award-winning multi-genre violinist with over 20 years of experience and over a decade of classical training. His music is rooted in Celtic fiddle traditions and Jazz Manouche violin, as well as other genres of world music. His past awards include first place at the 2015 mid-Atlantic open Regional Scottish Fiddle Competition (run by Scottish F.I.R.E) and Best March, Strathspey, and Reel at the open US National Fiddle Competition, the nation’s most prestigious competition for Scottish fiddle. When he was based in Atlanta, he served as the lead Scottish fiddler for the annual Rialto’s Atlanta Celtic Christmas, and performed with two Atlanta-based bands, FLAN, as a multi-instrumentalist, and Oakland City Swing, as a guest jazz violinist. Currently, he is based in Boston, MA where he is a sought-after traditional Celtic musician and a student of jazz and global violin styles at the Berklee College of Music.
