Tim Fain plays two pieces for solo violin and talks about his upcoming performances in Whitefish, Berlin and beyond.

When it comes to solo violin, Fain says, "There's something very satisfying ... being able to take the music wherever I go. That music could be easily performed whether it's down the Grand Canyon, or around a campfire up in the mountains, or anywhere, at a friend's house ... Some of these pieces really become a part of me in a way, and I'm grateful for that opportunity to really exlore that sound world."
