Geoffrey Castle is a pioneer on the electric six-string violin. From his beginnings as a street musician in New York City and Paris, he rose to play in the Tony Award winning Broadway production of M. Butterfly.
A theme of Castle's career is to destroy people's pre-conceived notions of what is possible on a violin, which he does every time he takes the stage. A bandleader and solo artist with several critically acclaimed releases on his own Twisted Fiddle Music label, Geoffrey Castle has also managed to share stages with an illustrious group of musicians, including Blues Traveler, all of the original and current members of Heart, Buddy Miles, and Alan White of Yes.
In keeping with the theme of changing the public's perception of what is possible on the violin, Castle has long been an advocate of community outreach and school performances, inspiring the next generation. School assembly, workshops, and fundraiser performances like "Keep the Music Alive," and the All-Star Synergia Concert to help support music programs in the schools, are all part of a genuine desire on the part of Geoffrey Castle to keep music programs alive in what is truly a tough economic environment.
Recently, Castle, along with 400 members of school orchestras in the Seattle area, set a world record for the most string players under one roof!
Anyone under 18 who brings a violin, viola, or cello gets in 1/2 price!
