Kimber Ludiker – Two-time Grand National Fiddle Champion (2009 and 2010), Kimber was born of fiddle-playing parents--who met competing with each other at a fiddle contest! This Washington state native excelled from an early age at Texas-style fiddling and went on to win multiple fiddle championships including the Washington State Championship, Colorado State Championship and the aforementioned Grand National Fiddle Championship in Weiser, Idaho. She has performed with Mark O'Connor, Mike Marshall, Darol Anger, Laurie Lewis, Hanneke Cassel, and her brother Dennis, a well-known fiddle/mandolin player from Austin, TX. As a founding member of the all-"girl" Bluegrass super-group Della Mae, she is widely regarded as a pillar of the new-generation fiddle scene, and can be found performing at every major festival across the country.
