Artist Spotlight: Mari Black

A Rich Musical Education

For years, Mari Black has traveled the globe to share her musical talent with people from all corners of the world. Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, Mari Black is an award-winning composer, fiddler, and multi-style violinist that is changing the way that music fans think about string music.

She pursued a rich musical education, eagerly seeking out anything there was to be learned about music and dedicating years to honing her craft. First, she obtained a Master of Music Degree from Yale University, also earning an Artist Diploma in Violin Performance. After that, she continued pursuing her passion for sharing music with others when she attended Columbia University’s Teachers College. There, Mari worked to graduate with a Doctorate degree in Education. At Columbia, she was also named the Geffen Fellow in Interdisciplinary Arts and Creativity.

Jumping Into Her Career

After that, Mari Black wasted no time in leaping into the world of music. In the last several years, she has performed and taught music in countless corners of the world, including the United States, Canada, China, Korea, Scotland, Hungary, Italy, France, and Zimbabwe. Her talents have not gone unrecognized, as she has been honored with many prestigious awards including the US National Scottish Fiddle Champion in 2013 and 2015, the Maritime Fiddle Champion in 2012 and 2014, and more.

An Artist of Many Talents

One of the things that fans love most about Mari Black is that her talents are not limited to a single type of music. Not only can she play the best of American, Irish, Canadian, and Scottish fiddling, but she is also a talented musician of folk, jazz, klezmer, Western Classical, and Argentine Tango. It is difficult to imagine a more varied musical range than that, but Mari Black doesn’t stop there – she is also a talented novelty fiddler, entertaining audiences with clever tricks and fun techniques.

Her most recent album, Flight, is a collection of dance-inspired music, full of the joy and vivacious spirit that Mari Black embodies so well. Songs like “Hallucinations,” “To Paula,” and “The Star of Munster” are demonstrations of her incredible talent, with every single minute of the album worth repeat listens.
