Casey Driessen is becoming one of the great young fiddlers of his generation. His father started him in the bluegrass style of fiddling by taking him around the country to festivals and contests, starting at age 6. Casey has since branched off to explore jazz, rock, funk, pop, country and other musical genres. With roots still in the American bluegrass tradition, Casey's playing reflects a deep sense of rhythm and groove, whatever the style at hand.
A Chicago native now based in Nashville, Casey is currently making appearances with Tim O'Brien, and with his own group, Wisechild, with Luke Bulla. He has appeared, both live and on recordings, with Steve Earle, Nickel Creek, John Mayer, Darrell Scott, Chris Jones, Darol Anger, Judith Edelman, Alison Brown, Robbie Fulks, John Cowan, Yonder Mountain String Band, and Scott Nygaard. He also shares his musical experience by teaching at Mark O'Connor's Fiddle Camp, Bluegrass Week at Augusta Heritage Camps, and the Haapavesi Music Camp in Finland. Casey is a graduate of Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor of Music in Music Production and Engineering.
