Paul with Joe Venuti

Versatile violinist and fiddler Paul Anastasio grew up in Bellingham, Washington, and became fascinated with the violin at age 9. Originally classically trained, he was soon drawn to popular music, playing in country and bluegrass bands and winning a stack of trophies in old-time fiddle contests. His teachers included Seattle Symphony Assistant Concertmaster Sergei Kardelian and renowned jazz violinist Joe Venuti, who took Paul on as the only student he ever taught at his home in Seattle. He performs with his own group, Paul Anastasio and his Swing Cats, and as a member of the group Pearl Django. 

In any style, Paul’s thirty-two years of experience result in performances marked by consummate professionalism, good taste, and above all his love of music.
