Join us for a concert featuring selections from the Lord of the Dance, Dropkick Murphys, Celtic Women, popular covers, Celtic rock, notable film scores, and traditional Celtic, Scottish and Irish Fiddle music.
Comprised of violinists Hanna Wolle and Genevieve Salamone, the Dueling Fiddles are an entertainment duo that mix the rich sounds of the violin with layered accompaniment for energetic and engaging performances. This Des Moines-based duo performs a wide range of repertoire, ranging from Celtic Rock to modern pop favorites, that audiences of all ages will enjoy. Recent and upcoming performances include: Bacon Fest, Des Moines Christkindlmarket, CelebrAsian, Madison County Covered Bridge Festival and the World Food & Music Festival, among others.
Genevieve and Hanna started their duo in 2012, after connecting as stand partners in the Des Moines Symphony. Their love of music, performing, and exploring the boundaries of music led them to start the Dueling Fiddles. What started as a fun project quickly evolved into a main stage performance act, and they enjoy performing and connecting with fans in Des Moines and across the Midwest. Their love of sharing their music with others fuels their energy on stage, and they guarantee a show where fans will walk away having enjoyed the music, energy, and virtuosic talent of the Dueling Fiddles.
