Jo Bird – the electric Witch Stick – Viola
The Fiddle Witch is a violist from Pasa-Get-Down-Dena TX and has been rockin’ up a ruckus with various musical projects in Hoston for about 12 years now including Two Star Symphony, Sean Reefer and the Resin Valley Boys, Pecos Hank, I Am Mesmer, along with various other musical acts and meduims such as dance, film and theatre. Her newest project, Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom, has finally come to life and their debut album is right around the corner. Her roots derive from the classical world starting at the age of 10. Conjuring a distinct sound of her original compositions are her specialty.
One of the inspirations for Fiddle Witch and the Demons of Doom came from her 14th great grandmother Rebecca Greensmith who was sadly executed as a witch along with her husband Nathaniel during the 1662-1663 Hartford, Connecticut witch hunt outbreak.
