The String Garden, founded by Eva Walsh in 2017, is an affordable and personal string section recording service. Grown from a lifetime of experience as a string player, a passion for songwriting and the natural ability to support musicians and composers, The String Garden allows any musician to add a professional fiddler, string quartet, or string section to their musical project.
Eva Walsh, violinist, violist and vocalist for the The String Garden is a powerhouse musician, hailing from 17 years of intense classical violin training, culminating in a Bachelor of Music degree from Vanderbilt University in Violin Performance in 2010. Vanderbilt, being located in Nashville, not only prepared her for a professional life as a violinist, but sparked a new sense of creativity and interest in multiple styles of music. Before leaving Nashville, Eva played fiddle at the Grand Ole Opry, sang jazz with a big band and accompanied songwriters all over town with fiddle and harmony vocals.
Now based on the south coast of Massachusetts, Eva has played with professional orchestras, punk-rock bands, bluegrass bands, rock bands, americana bands, jazz groups, rap artists, and has accompanied many folk songwriters live, on tour and in studio, including as a violinist with Guster at the Paradise Rock Club and Father John Misty at the Leader Bank Pavilion. Along with these supporting roles, Eva has also produced two solo albums of her own, playing violin, viola, cello, guitar, mandolin and ukulele as accompaniment to her own vocals.
Eva is now an in-demand musician for hire, adaptable to any live or studio circumstances. Able to create high quality string arrangements and fiddle parts, or incorporate prewritten melodies or music, Eva is an excellent collaborator for any recording project.
