Master Teacher Vi Wickam
"I've been performing and writing music since before I could read. I began studying composition and arranging in Junior High. Along with my brothers and my dad, The Wickam Family Band even performed regularly on Blinky's Fun Club, a nationally syndicated TV program shown in 23 states.
My fiddle playing can be heard on a half dozen CD recordings, including two of my own. I've played with many difference bands throughout the United States, and even briefly in England. I've won the Colorado State Championship twice, and been a finalist four times in the Grand Masters' Fiddler Championship. I've also directed the Indiana State Fiddle Contest for the past three years.
My musical tastes span bluegrass to classical to jazz, rock andold-time fiddle. I play guitar, mandolin, bass, and viola, but my main instrument is the fiddle. Regardless of the style of music I am playing, or the instrument, the music is in me, and I am thoroughly in the music."--ViTheFiddler.com
