Moxie Strings

The Moxie Strings is the electrifying combination of fiddler Diana Ladio and electric cellist, Alison Lynn. With their feel-good melodies and foot-stomping, rock-influenced rhythms, these young women have put a fresh, enticing spin on Celtic and Americana music. Though rooted in tradition, The Moxie Strings offer listeners the unique opportunity to experience some of the world’s best-known instruments and oldest tunes through a young, progressive lens. Diana and Alison often join forces with dynamic drummer and world percussionist, Fritz McGirr, who lends his spirited expertise of traditional music’s percussion component, and a creative rhythmic energy to the show. All hold Bachelor of Music degrees in music performance and music education, which gives each the technical foundation to explore the limits of his/her instrument, and helped the group build a reputation for musical excellence. The Moxie Strings write the majority of their pieces, and also arrange traditional tunes from many different countries and genres. They have three studio recordings to their credit, including their most recent release, “Outlet.”
