Mix a little bit of country and Cajun, with a touch of Rock-n-Roll and Blues, and you have a funky Louisiana flavor that fiddler and singer Amanda Shaw brings every time her high heels dance across a stage. Amanda's passion for her culture is evident in the diverse blend of music she creates with every note she plays.
Becoming a classically trained violinist at age four, Amanda studied music at Southeastern Louisiana University Community Music School, and has been memorizing fans with locally- infused performances for nearly twenty years. As a young child, Amanda was inspired by artists like Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Bonnie Raitt and others that influenced the entertainment industry. Similar to those artists, Amanda made a name for herself by achieving goals and breaking records like becoming the youngest soloist to perform in the Baton Rouge Symphony at the tender age of eight.
"Music is in my soul - it's in every beat of my heart. My wish is that everyone who experiences an Amanda Shaw performance is able to feel the joy and beauty music brings to my life," Amanda Shaw.
