BIOGRAPHY

 

Anna Harris is a Nashville-based musician/singer-songwriter who grew up in Austin, TX. She comes from a long line of musicians and music lovers; her grandmother was a celebrated pianist and performer, and her grandfather was the founder of Austin City Limits, the longest-running TV music show in American history. That rich musical heritage gave her an eclectic musical palette, one that includes Americana, electronica and everything in between. After a decade of classical piano training Anna begged her parents for violin lessons after seeing a full orchestra for the first time. At age 15 she turned her attention fully to the violin, and studied with Eugene Gratovich at the University of Texas at Austin.

Throughout college and beyond, Anna played in multiple symphonies in the Central Texas area. After earning a BA in history she honed her skills as a fiddle player, and has toured both in the United States and internationally. Though she enjoys playing with a wide variety of artists (including Susan Gibson, Kiya Heartwood, Grace Pettis, India Ramey, and Rayvon Pettis to name a few) she also composes and performs her original songs every chance she gets.
