The dawn of Rachel's musical career began very early in her life. At age two, she shared the stage with her older sister, mom, and dad singing the old hymn standards at church. By age four, she began playing Y8 violin. She soon displayed a rare and sparkling talent that magnified the status of a then unheard of band Burnett Family Bluegrass. She proved her shining fiddle prowess when she won first place at the Julian C. Adult Fiddle Competition in 2003. Then onward to a first place win in the Telluride Bluegrass Competition in 2004. Next stop, 2005, Nashville, Tennessee, for a command performance at the IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association). She has an annual performance at Pickin' in the Pines with her band for the last ten years. Rachel started teaching at age 17. Since then, she has taught violin, piano, voice, guitar and beginning uke. You can catch Rachel at one of her shows locally.
