Mike McClellan - Fiddle
Our fiddle player is Washington state native Mike McClellan. Mike plays many instruments and has played with local bluegrass, jazz, Celtic, and rock/pop groups.
In his younger years he traveled around the US and Europe playing keyboards for a Christian folk rock artist. He's arranged music for choir and orchestra and has produced recordings for local songwriters. Now an aeronautical engineer with degrees in physics and mechanical engineering, he once was a church music minister in Nebraska, New York, Washington, and Texas.
Mike has a bachelor's degree in music composition from Ithaca College in New York and a master's in music theory from SMU in Dallas, but when not playing music or fixing airplanes he usually has a saw or hammer in hand, building or fixing just about anything that needs fix in'. Mike has been married to his high school sweetheart for 36 years and has 5 kids.
