Violin Femme, Back again

Violinist Adrienne Biggs returns to play the Lobero after her debut in 1975

This story came in through the Lobero’s Facebook page.
“I played my first violin concert at age 9 at the Lobero, and am super excited to return “home” nearly 40 years later for Danny Click’s show on May 3, as his fiddler!” – Adrienne Biggs

Adrienne Biggs, aka, Violin Femme, and her musician parents (Grammy-winning singer/arranger Salli Terri and Ojai-based composer John Biggs) lived in Santa Barbara in the 1970’s. Mom, Salli, also taught at UCSB. The Biggs family played the Lobero Theatre on Dec. 17,1975. (Check out the photo in front of the Lobero’s kiosk!)

Adrienne mentions on her facebook page that she didn’t have the typical upbringing: “Instead of vacations, our family toured professionally in nearly 30 countries, performing an eclectic program including Renaissance to Americana music on period instruments that we owned, like harpsichord, piano, krumhorns, hurdy gurdy, recorders, hand bells, portative organ, rauschpfeife and of course, violins.”

After playing in youth and then professional orchestras and ensembles, in the early 90’s Adrienne moved to San Francisco and played with numerous bands in all of the notable venues, including Danny Click and the Hell Yeahs, who take the stage by way of Sings Like Hell this Saturday, May 3.
