Houston Episode #34: Where is 'World Renowned Electric Violinist' Geoffrey Castle?

Episode #34 (Season 3) featuring   Geoffrey Castle

Geoffrey Castle’s songs from his “Celtic Night” album featured in this episode are (in order):
– Swallowtail
– Streets of Ironwood
– Spancil Hill
– Fisherman’s Blues

Geoffrey Castle began playing violin at age nine in New York City. Geoffrey studied privately and began solo performances on the electric violin at the age of 17. He was a street musician to earn money while attending Columbia University where he received a Cum Laude degree in English and Comparative Literature.

Geoffrey Castle is a pioneer on the electric six-string violin. From his beginnings as a street musician in New York City and Paris, he rose to play in the Tony Award winning Broadway production of M. Butterfly. A theme of Castle’s career is to destroy people’s pre-conceived notions of what is possible on a violin, which he does every time he takes the stage. A bandleader and solo artist—with several critically acclaimed releases on his own Twisted Fiddle Music label—Geoffrey Castle has also managed to share stages with an illustrious group of musicians including Blues Traveler, all of the original and current members of Heart, Buddy Miles, and Alan White of Yes.

Electric Six-string Violinist Geoffrey Castle fearlessly brings the violin back to center stage with virtuoso showmanship and a 21st century attitude.
