Born in Los Angeles, violinist/violist/composer Samantha Gillogly began her musical training at age six on the island of Martha's Vineyard. She has studied with numerous renowned performers and educators, including Russian national prizewinner Lilia Muchnik, jazz artist David Eure, and Boston Symphony concertmaster Malcolm Lowe at New England Conservatory. She now holds a Bachelor's in Performance, summa cum laude, from Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Fluent in an extensive list of classical repertoire, from Adams to Zelenka, Samantha is also an avid fan and performer of traditional Irish, Scottish and other Celtic and roots genres, as well as music of the Middle-eastern traditions. As a soloist, she has appeared on NBC-TV's Chronicle news magazine, performed for President George H.W. Bush and Mrs. Barbara Bush and for President William and Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton, and concertized in numerous recitals, competitions and private functions throughout the U.S. From 2007-2011 she was the principal violist of the Boston Civic Symphony, and in 2008 joined Billboard's chart-topping composer, Tim Janis, as a violinist in the Tim Janis Ensemble. In 2009, she was a member of the innovative Youtube Symphony Orchestra, which performed live at Carnegie Hall under the direction of Michael Tilson-Thomas.

Samantha's latest recording projects include the 2012 crossover album Celtic Chamber Music with pianist Tim Maurice, and two digital singles: Misty Mountain (also with Maurice), and the solo single, Danse Macabre. Samantha's music is available for purchase on Amazon, iTunes, and CDBaby.

My wedding was less than a week ago in the Chateau Briand, I hired Samantha as my violinist for my ceremony and cocktail hour. I just say it was everything I wanted and more. I wasn't able to see her during cocktail hour due to the running around and taking pictures. But I heard nothing but wonderful comments from my guests. Everyone thought it was extraordinary and unique! If my guests are happy and having a good time, then so am I. Thanks so much Samantha!

Samantha was everything we expected... she was on time, played beautifully & was very polite. The music was just what we asked for & she was very professional - didn't ask any questions/just knew what she was doing & did it flawlessly! We'd definitely recommend Samantha!
