www.amybutterworth.moonfruit.com

Seasoned tour musician, kick-ass performer, creative collaborator, and all-round positive force, Amy uses her unique skills to provide the best violin performance possible. Her experience in theatre ensembles, the comedy circuit, and worldwide musical tours means she understands the need for top-notch professionalism and a great sense of humour to make the experience as productive as possible. Having played blues in Mississippi, electro in Prague, hip hop in New York, gospel in Belgium, klezmer on a comedy tour and heavy metal in Camden, she is looking for her next tour/project.
