Nashville Cats: Salute to Vocalist and Fiddler Andrea Zonn

Saturday, June 17, 2017 - 02:00pm

Andrea Zonn’s playing combines the energy of traditional fiddling and the elegance of classical violin. Her talent has led her to share studios and stages with Trace Adkins, Vince Gill, Lyle Lovett, Ronnie Milsap, Pam Tillis, and James Taylor, in whose band she plays at present. Zonn’s professional career began at eighteen, when she played with banjo legend Tony Trischka while studying violin at Vanderbilt. Zonn has contributed fiddle and background vocals to records by Deana Carter, Kenny Chesney, Neil Diamond, Linda Ronstadt, Lee Ann Womack, and many others. She has released two albums on Compass Records. The latest, Rise, contains duets with Adkins and Gill of her original songs. This interview and performance will be illustrated with vintage photos, film footage, and recordings.

This program takes place in the Museum's Ford Theater and will be streamed live at

After the program Zonn will sign commemorative Hatch Show Print posters.
