Ciana Rosenblad is a classically trained violinist born and raised in Austin, Texas. For the past decade, she has been playing classical violin, jazz violin, irish fiddle, country fiddle, baroque violin, world music, indie singer/songwriter music, film scores, and contemporary Christian music in the Austin and the DFW areas.
