Bryan McDowell is a person predictable only in his consistent excellence. Fiddler, vocalist, and seducer of stringed instruments, his reputation is solidifying as a musician of great interest on the Nashvillle scene. With his move to the area in 2013, Bryan grounded his career in a four-year tenure with Claire Lynch. He has logged considerable time on the road with bluegrass notables Sierra Hull, Alison Brown, Ron Block and Molly Tuttle, and shared the stage and studio with an ever expanding list of legendary names from the realm of roots and acoustic music. The talents of the new master have made their way on to several recordings garnering IBMA awards, and one project receiving a Grammy nomination. Prior accolades worth mentioning are his triple win - a sweep of the fiddle, mandolin and guitar categories - at the National Flatpicking Championship in '09 and his 21 other instrument contest titles from '09 & '10.
