A Nashville-based fiddler, composer, and arranger, Kate has over twelve years of experience playing violin.  She is classically trained, but she also specializes in country, bluegrass, and Celtic.  More than a fiddler, however, she also writes music varying from bluegrass tunes to orchestral compositions, and she has experience creating arrangements ranging from orchestral scores to jazz band charts.  Currently a first-year graduate student at Belmont University studying Commercial Music with an emphasis in Media Writing/Arranging, she has performed with artists such as Cody Fry, Ben Rector, Cory Wong, Matt Maher, Mo Pitney, and Cody Kilby.  She is also fresh off her debut at the Grand Ole Opry as part of the Belmont Bluegrass Ensemble.  Are you looking for the next addition to your writer’s room, recording project, or live show?  Consider getting to know Kate Ward.

“Kate Ward is a violinist whose musical talents are matched by her strong work ethic and kind heart. She is on track to be one of the best in the business!” – Ryan Joseph
