"Daniel and Amy Carwile are two of the most accomplished musicians I have run across in a long time. They can cover a lot of styles with equal ease and expertise. Whether you need high energy performance, super workshops or one on one teaching, you can't go wrong with them. We plan to have them back as soon as possible!"
- Director - Kentucky Center For Traditional Music

"Amy and Daniel Carwile are masters of their art. Pulsating, heart stopping reels and jigs, their music defies an audience to remain seated. Simply exhilarating!"
- Co-ordinator - Mull of Kintyre Music Festival. Scotland

"Daniel and Amy brought their magic to the stage for 3 sold out shows in Kirkland. Their artistry covers a range of moods from soulful airs to sizzling reels. They absolutely owned the audience while they were on stage. Their talent is a wonderful fusion of musical feeling and precision and they bring an energy out through their music that is infectious. ...they are professional, great performers and great people. Furthermore, when their names went on the bill, the tickets sales went through the roof."

- Pipe Major, Keith Highlanders Pipe Band

"Amy and Daniel simply amaze me with their instrumental virtuosity and highly varied song selection. Daniel's command of the many instruments he has mastered is clearly evident in his playing, and it wonderfully compliments Amy's soaring vocals. I'm looking forward to this husband and wife duo making a major impact on the Central Kentucky music scene."
- Director - Midway Fall Festival

Daniel Carwile is one of the finest and most scrupulous proponents of Texas-style fiddling, which in its turn one of the finest fiddling styles that there is. He really gets in there and hooks it."

- Fiddler Extraordinaire

"I've had the pleasure of playing with Daniel on several occasions. I love his playing--it's elegant and sophisticated, lyrical and interesting. He is very musical and well worth hearing. Don't miss it!"

- Guitar Virtuoso

“Daniel Carwile is one of those rare musicians who has it all: impeccable technique, a distinctive and original voice, stylistic mastery & versatility, genuine expression, and a teacher's heart that generously shares its knowledge with others. It is always a pleasure to listen, learn, and jam with him.”

- Faculty, The Juilliard School

"Daniel stands out of the crowd with his own style and presentation. Many fiddle players copy others, but Daniel has created a style and drives on for perfection. He is a leader in his field and you will enjoy his fresh approach."

Champion fiddlers and multi-instrumentalists, Daniel and Amy Carwile are a dynamic husband and wife musical duo whose personal connection lends poignancy to their music and spark to their performances.

Seasoned and diverse musicians, the Carwiles bring to the stage over 48 years of performing experience. They have performed with artists such as Tim O’Brien, Bela Fleck, The Moody Blues, The Battlefield Band, and Mark O’Connor. Competing across the country, Amy has garnered fiddle awards in over 10 states and British Columbia. Daniel, a U.S. Grand Master and World Series of Fiddling Champion, is also a sought after session musician, recording on Rounder, Sugar Hill, and Rebel Records with the likes of Alison Krauss, Sam Bush, Kenny & Amanda Smith, John Cowan, and Larry Cordle. His participation in, “Moody Bluegrass: A Nashville Tribute to the Moody Blues,” earned him a nomination for Recorded Event of the Year from the International Bluegrass Music Association and climbed to number 8 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Chart.
