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.
