Finnegan Shanahan — violin

Finnegan Shanahan is a whirlwind. Sometimes you’re swept away without even opening your eyes: vibrations and dazzling refractions split the air from splintering twisting hairs of a bow — that deeply swinging frenzied violin string — he is the twister. Hard storm comin’ down the falling trees like a nightlight of never-ending fingers, sometimes he carries you in clouds through star-neighboring sweetness, yes, he is the respite, he is the rearranger of souls across those everlasting sound seas between you and me.
— Dylan Mattingly, co-artistic director
