Megan Lynch was raised in Redding, California, often considered the hotbed of fiddle music west of the Rockies. She began taking lessons at the age of four and started competing shortly thereafter. Megan won her first National Championship at age 8 and followed that with three consecutive wins at ages 10, 11, and 12. In 2003 Megan made a return to serious competition and captured two more National titles in 2003 and 2004. During the last 24 years of on-and-off competition, Megan has also won 6 California State titles, as well as the Minnesota State Championships. Megan is in high demand as a private and group teacher. She counts dozens of State and National Champions among her students, and has recently added several prestigious bluegrass camps to her list of teaching accomplishments. Her no-holds-barred workshops have drawn rave reviews across the country. Since moving to Nashville, Megan has played with country legend Pam Tillis as well as bluegrass luminaries Tony Trischka, Dale Ann Bradley, Roland White, Larry Cordle, Jim Hurst, and Chris Jones. Megan is a former member of Koch recording artists 3 Fox Drive and west coast supergroup Due West. Megan now plays in the critically acclaimed duet Bill Evans and Megan Lynch. Their debut record has been in the top ten of the folk charts for most of 2009 and has brought rave reviews from musicians like Tony Trischka, Pete Wernick, and April Verch, not to mention publications such as Bluegrass Unlimited and Maverick Magazine (UK). Megan is the founder and director of FiddleStar Youth and Adult Fiddle Camps. Megan is a fiddler of varied interests and influences. You never know if she's going to go Texas style, Celtic, Motown, Bluegrass, or all of the above!
