Kelley started violin in the 4th grade when all students were offered music lessons. She has played classical music in orchestras, was the fiddler in “Fiddler on the Roof” in high school, and at UCLA played violin and sang in the UCLA mariachi band, which helped her pay for college.  She also plays viola and has a 5-string violin which allows for both instrumentations. After college she played in other bands such as pop, wedding and country/bluegrass bands where she mastered the fiddle standards “Devil went down to GA” and “Orange Blossom Special,” and others which are always crowd-pleasers.
