Josie Toney has been a fixture of the folk music community since a young age, growing up in the contra dance community of Olympia, Washington. Starting violin lessons at the age of 5, she quickly gravitated towards the fiddle tunes her father began teaching her as soon as she could hold the fiddle off of the floor. At 15 she helped form The Retrospectacles, along with fiddler Andrew Foster, pianist Scotty Leach, and Bassist Ethan Jodzeiwicz, who went on to energize contra dance communities around the country. You can now find her in Denver, Colorado where she teaches fiddle through her own studio and performs with Bluegrass and Country bands throughout the Front Range.
