Hailing from Maine, Julia Plumb (fiddle, foot percussion) and Baron Collins-Hill (tenor guitar, mandolin) play original and traditional fiddle tunes from New England, Quebec, Appalachia, Scandinavia, and the British Isles. They play with a tight, close sound, staying true to the tunes and bolstering them with with driving dance rhythms and sweet harmonies. Julia and Baron are thoughtful teachers and experienced players, performing for dances, concerts, weddings, and other events. As the duo Velocipede, the synergy of Julia and Baron’s playing is manifest. Whether delivering a ripping set of reels for a contra dance, teaching crooked tunes from their journeys to Quebec at a workshop, or harmonizing with an achingly beautiful march in concert, Velocipede is sure to catch listeners’ ears and set toes tapping.

After years of enjoying each other’s playing, Julia Plumb and Baron Collins-Hill formed Velocipede in 2011.
