Lots of new stuff. Since January, I am now official :"Liz Fiddle" no longer : Liz Friedel.

Opus Black String Quartet has now become Opus Black. (Trio) VERY excited to announce that we are currently working with an arranger and some very awesome new material! 

Mohawk Valley Strings will give their concert Thursday May 16, the concert will culminate with the grand finale of the John Williams piece: "Dry your Tears Afrika" featuring the Holy Cross choir, band and Mohawk Valley Strings!! Thanks so much to VVS School District for loaning us the music! 

Recently became part of the 5 families project! We will be giving our first concert 5.19 ! This is a project comprised of Monk Rowe (Sax, Flute, Composer) Kristen Kopf (cello) Tom , Nick Fields (Trumpet) and myself. 

Formed a new project for the Summer:

Couple of snags in the construction of the new building, septic... Things need to be done outside, but the rain! We are still plugging along, and on track for finish up work over the next few months! 

Thanks for all the support.




Who's Liz


Watch me play

I'm Liz, I think of myself as a multi-faceted folk fiddler with a thirst for new ways to communicate with music lovers and musicians alike.

My music explores contemporary American culture and draws from musical forms outside the Western classical tradition.

I run a music school out of my studio in the Central New York area of State Bridge and I often perform with other bands. I Currently perform with Opus Black, Fish Creek Rodeo,Remsen Social Club, The Funky Romance, Greg Hoover and Richie Melito, Bradish and O'Rourke, Ed Vollmer, Chuck Dorgan, TumbleWeed Gumbo. Mohawk Valley Strings, Big Easy Duo, Liz and Al. A fiddler/musician for hire, you can catch me out locally! I am also available for weddings, corporate events and have duos, trios, quartets, bands as well as the availability of solo music. A hired clinician, Liz is available for group fiddle classes, teacher clinics and student workshops. 


Be on the look out for the jams at Oneida American Legion! Come sign up in person, or just hang and enjoy all the amazing talent! All proceeds go to helping our Veterans.
