Lily Sexton teaches fiddle at NCMC. Lily studied Suzuki violin beginning at age four and continued a classical music education in violin at the Westport Suzuki School and the Talent Education Suzuki School. While pursuing a Bachelor’s degree at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, she shifted her focus to fiddling in the traditional Appalachian style. Since then, she has formed several bands in the Pioneer Valley, most notably progressive bluegrass group Mamma’s Marmalade. Outside of New England, her bands have toured the U.S. and Canada, and she has shared stages with traditional music greats such as Joe Newberry, Mike Compton, and Michael Daves.
