Justine Parker Russell
Justine was born and raised in Edinboro and has been surrounded by music for her entire life. She started taking classical violin lessons when she was seven years old, which she continued throughout high school. What started out as an extracurricular activity became a way of life. She enjoys attending the Great Blue Heron Music Festival, where she first learned to "fiddle." She has been one of two lead fiddle players in TMSB since its conception in 1999. She enjoys playing catchy fiddle tunes with driving rhythms and intricate notation. She earned a Doctor of Pharmacy degree in 2012 from the University of Pittsburgh.
