Bridget Marsden

Bridget Marsden is a violinist who walks her own path. An encounter with Swedish folk music made such a strong impression on her that she moved from England to Sweden, to study folk music at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. Today she works as a freelance musician and teacher. Bridget is specialised in the Bingsjö fiddle tradition, and has amongst other things produced When I Listen To Bingsjö, a unique solo project combining an exhibition with live performance. She was awarded the prestigious Päkkos Gustaf Scholarship in 2011. Bridget can also be heard in the group Stormsteg, who won Best Newcomer at the Swedish Folk & World Music Awards 2012.
