Fiddle - Vocals
From the Northern end of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, Malia grew up surrounded by music. She started playing classical violin at the age of three and at age seven, her family started playing bluegrass after going to the Galax Old Fiddler's Convention. Combining her classical and bluegrass repertoire, she established herself as an award winning musician, placing first at the Loudon County, Chesterfield, Burlington, and Galax Fiddle Contests, to name a few. Additionally, she has performed at some notable venues that include the Kennedy Center, Ryman Auditorium, America's Cup of Polo, ROMP, and the Carter Family Fold. Previous bands she has played in and for include her family band, All 4 Hymn, Blue Light Special, Driving Force, No Speed Limit and Heather Berry.
Although recently on a three-year hiatus to travel and do full-time volunteer work, Malia has returned to her true passion. Malia plays fiddle and sings harmony vocals with Circa Blue.
