Ethan Jodziewicz & Tatiana Hargreaves
Ethan Jodziewicz & Tatiana Hargreaves brings together the unique voices of innovative genre-bending double bassist Ethan Jodziewicz and award-winning Appalachian fiddler and singer Tatiana Hargreaves in a passionate and virtuosic acoustic duo.
Fueled by an instant chemistry sparked from collaborations, jam sessions, and philosophical discussions at the Savannah Music Festival’s Acoustic Music Seminar in 2013, the musical connection between Ethan and Tatiana runs deep and flows with ease. Their rapidly expanding repertoire combines traditional Appalachian tunes and songs, Swedish polskas and original compositions. Drawing on diverse musical backgrounds (chamber music to old-time, jazz to progressive-acoustic) they create a lush sound born out of reverence for tradition and a desire to push the boundaries of string playing.
Not content to adhere to the traditional roles of their instruments, Ethan and Tatiana share equal responsibility as soloist and accompanist, intricately intertwining melodies and harmonies. Throughout the course of a performance, they engage in thru-composed string arrangements, expand into burning improvisations, and play dual-fiddles (it’s true, the bass can be a fiddle too!), and sing in two-part harmony on classic tunes and songs.
Tatiana and Ethan released their self-titled debut EP in May of 2015, and continue to maintain a busy schedule, both as a duo and in other projects.
