Violinist Alex Hargreaves of Corvallis, Oregon, plays a wide variety of styles and has been mentored by some of the greats in acoustic roots music and jazz. He has toured with David Grisman, Mike Marshall, Danilo Perez, Bela Fleck, Jerry Douglas, and Darol Anger, among others. Hargreaves performs and tours regularly with singer/multi-instrumentalist, Sarah Jarosz, appearing on her three critically acclaimed albums, Song Up In Her Head, Follow Me Down and Build Me Up From Bones (Sugar Hill Records), as well as being featured on her Grammy-nominated instrumental, Mansinneedof.

Hargreaves' debut album Prelude, released on Adventure Music in 2010, features Bela Fleck, Mike Marshall, Noam Pikelny, Grant Gordy and Paul Kowert. David Grisman comments, “[Alex] plays with wit, authority and soulfulness belying his years. In my opinion, he's destined to be one of the fiddle giants of the 21st century.”

In pursuit of his passion for jazz and improvisational-based music, Alex completed the prestigious Berklee Global Jazz Institute at the Berklee College of Music in Boston as a Jimmy Lyons Scholar.

 

Hargreaves most recently recorded with renowned pianist, Danilo Perez, on his upcoming album, Panama 500 (Mack Avenue Records).
