Classical & Folk / Solo, Duos, & Trios

Besides my usual gig as a bluegrass fiddler with the Gina Furtado Project, I enjoy filling my time with my own gigs. I take great pride in providing the highest quality music services in Classical & Folk for weddings and other events. Whether you envision a polished & formal ambiance, or a more casual, country feel, I will curate a music package according to your preference with elegance, professionalism, and personalized attention. Packages include solo violin/fiddle, classical or folk duos and trios for weddings, private parties, house concerts, and other events. I'm also available for workshops, camps, and session work.

Wedding Reviews

"Malia played for our small (20 person) wedding last weekend and was wonderful! We zoomed ahead of time to talk about song selection and everything went beautifully on our wedding day. It was a fun touch to have live music at such an intimate event. Malia adapted so deftly to our rain plan and the music she chose for our cocktail hour set the perfect mood." -Erin S, Madison, VA (2021)

"We were incredibly fortunate to have found such a phenomenal local musician who plays both classical violin and fiddle/folk style! Malia expertly blended the two styles to create a warm, poignant atmosphere for our “micro-mony” and intimate reception. She went above and beyond to ensure our vision came to life perfectly on our special day! Not only was Malia a great pleasure to work with, she was formative in creating the most beautiful, unforgettable event of our lives. We’d absolutely recommend her to anyone, a thousand times over."   -Brittany O., Charlottesville, VA (Dec, 2020)

"Malia was the perfect addition to our rehearsal dinner celebration. Our guests were in awe and it gave ambiance beyond compare. Malia plays beautifully with excellence and she is a very professional musician. We will invite her again for our next celebration! Thank you Malia!" -Violet B, Charlottesville, VA (Nov, 2020)
