ECA Presents Kelly Hall-Tompkins, “The Fiddler Expanding Tradition”


Acclaimed by the New York Times as “the versatile violinist who makes the music come alive,” Grammy-nominated Kelly Hall-Tompkins was the “Fiddler,” violin soloist, for the Bartlett Sher production of Fiddler on the Roof on Broadway. She is the first violinist to bring an entire program of all-new solo arrangements from the beloved musical through her new album, The Fiddler Expanding Tradition. Ms. Hall-Tompkins will appear at ECA in a quartet configuration with violin, bass, guitar, and accordion.

A dedicated humanitarian, Kelly Hall-Tompkins founded and directs “Music Kitchen: Food for the Soul,” a non-profit that has brought almost 100 chamber music performances to New York City and Los Angeles homeless shelters. Guest artists have included Emanuel Ax, Glenn Dicterow, Albrecht Mayer, Jeff Ziegler, and Rene Marie.
