Daniel Kellar

 "When Daniel Kellar digs in on violin, it's uncertain when he's coming back, and the audience doesn't care - you're lost in the music with him."

NEW ENGLAND PERFORMER MAGAZINE

 "Kellar injects not only the feel of a barn dance but the broad violin tone and elegance of Stephane Grappelli's Hot Club of Paris-era performances"

THE BOSTON PHOENIX

 

 "Daniel Kellar's violin created an odd blend of sliding notes that dissolved any racial and genre boundaries within the music"

NO DEPRESSION

  "Daniel Kellar plays low, chordal fiddle licks that suddenly explode into high, wailing glissandos. Other times, he plucks mandolin-like leads or bows beneath the lines of violent ballads and dark laments." --- Scott Alarik 

THE BOSTON GLOBE

 

"...mind -bending pizzacato" --- Steve Morse

THE BOSTON GLOBE

 

 "Daniel Kellar's violin manages to straddle the Opry and the Hot Club."

PULSE!

 

 "Violinist Daniel Kellar alternately sounded Gypsy, bluegrass, and jazz, but mostly he used his violin to insert the sort of blues licks that a guitarist would add to paint colors through and around the music...Kellar's fiddle suggested that much of the bag of blues-guitar tricks might have originated on his instrument."
