The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will host an interview and performance featuring master fiddler and celebrated vocalist Andrea Zonn as part of the museum series Nashville Cats. Set for Saturday, June 17, at 2 p.m. in the museum’s Ford Theater, the program will be hosted by Bill Lloyd. Vintage photos, film footage, and recordings from Zonn’s career will illustrate the interview. Following the program, Zonn will sign commemorative Hatch Show Print posters, available for purchase in the Museum Store.
Zonn grew up in Illinois, but found her musical grounding in Nashville at Vanderbilt’s Blair School of Music. Her combination of traditional fiddling and classical violin techniques has led to a career touring with artists including Vince Gill, Lyle Lovett, and, since 2003, James Taylor. In the studio, Zonn has contributed fiddle and background vocals to tracks for country, pop, and folk artists like Deana Carter, Kenny Chesney, Neil Diamond, Linda Ronstadt, Lee Ann Womack and many others. While Zonn’s list of session credits is impressive, she also has released two albums of her own which feature artists like Trace Adkins and Gill on her original songs.
The Zonn interview is included with museum admission and free to museum members. Seating is limited, and passes are required for admittance. Museum members can reserve program passes in advance by phone (615-416-2050) or via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
