The Walker sisters, Aerie (cello) and Tuki (fiddle and vocals) are proud alums of Freight and Salvage’s summer program Fiddlekids and have made guest appearances with an eclectic variety of fiddlers ranging from Hanneke Cassel and Mads Tolling to Alasdair Fraser and the Scottish Fiddlers. The 15 year old twins have just released a new CD with their Celtic band, Where to Now. Aerie studies with Tashina and Tristan Clarridge and toured with them last spring. Aerie also plays a mean Texas fiddle! Tuki comes to bluegrass by meandering way of Celtic fiddle and jazz. She has appeared in “Jazz in the Neighborhood” with her mentor, jazz violinist Mads Tolling.
