Lydia Violet Music
"Lydia is a magical gypsy whose violin notes dance like fire and fall with the grace of water. She is one of the most talented violinists Ive ever had the honor of working with. Her enthusiasm is absolutely infectious, and she is always so receptive to ideas, feedback, changes, and crazy impromptu improvisations. She beams a bright light, and it truly brightens up every person around her." - Ayla Nereo
