Lindsey Stirling is an American violinist, dancer, composer and performance artist. She was in America's Got Talent (I don't watch the show myself but found out through a pupil of mine) and got quite far. However she really hit the big time by posting her virtuoso performances online on Youtube. As of January she had over half a billion hits and 4 million subscribers. I went through a phase trying to learn the violin but man when you hit a wrong note it sounds REALLY wrong, so I soon quit. Lindsey has got me tempted to pick up my bow again... watch out world!
