Biography

Rebecca Lomnicky won the junior division of the US National Scottish Fiddle Competition at the age of 13. Since then she’s become known as the “Pipey Scottish Fiddler” for her unique and lively fiddle bow and fingerings, along with her soulful airs that’ll take you back to the misty Scottish Highlands. Performing at Scottish festivals and Celtic gatherings from the west coast to Boston, this young woman has had the honor of being selected to perform in the 2009 NW Folkilfe Festival’s Fiddler’s Showcase and Awesome Celtic Show!
Rebecca was recently invited and will be one of only eight people competing in the Glenfiddich International Scottish Fiddle Championship on November 1st, 20009 at Blair Castle, Pitlochry, Scotland. She will represent the USA!
Rebecca’s debut CD “The Call” was hailed by Dirty Linen Magazine (June 08) as “a technically masterful, wonderfully melodic collection of fiddle tunes”. She has recently collaborated with David Brewer on his latest CD, “Turning Pages”, a bagpipe album featuring tunes resurrected from 18th century Scottish manuscripts and newly composed pieces with intricately interwoven pipes and fiddle.
David Brewer, award-winning bagpiper, is a founding member of the Celtic band Molly’s Revenge. Performing nationally and internationally, David is an extraordinary multi-instrumentalist, who can be found playing Great Highland bagpipes, Scottish small pipes, whistles and bodhran.
David and Rebecca are a dynamic duo on stage!
Peter Willis, an outstanding guitar-player in his own right! Peter has won several accompanist awards and performs regularly with Northwest musicians.
