About Maggie Herself


Celtic and Folk Music

Magdalena (Maggie) is one of the four principal violinists in the South Dakota Symphony and has performed in Europe and America as a soloist.


“I enjoy playing fiddle and Celtic music. It’s deceptively hard to do, even for a practiced musician, and I think it must be one of the original feel-good forms of music."
