---

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.

Samantha went above and beyond for our event. She learned the sheet music for the new songs that we requested of her. She was extremely flexible about what time we wanted her to show up and leave. We were having such a great time at the party, Samantha decided to stay and play for us a bit longer than we had even booked her to play. I would highly recommend booking Samantha for your next event. Thank you!!

Samantha was absolutely great to work with. She arrived exactly when she said she would, played all the songs I'd requested beautifully and even stayed a bit extra to take some pictures with us. I would 100% work with her again and recommend her for whatever event you have in mind.
