Sixteen-year-old Ariana Rosen and her 13-year-old sister Amberly began classical violin studies at ages four and three. They now play in the South Eugene HS and Roosevelt MS string ensembles, and as members (each since age eight) of Balladina, an international folk dance band. "Amberly and I do weddings," adds Ariana. "We're playing at one in November." The Rosens got started in fiddle music in 1993 as charter members of Fiddle Magic, a group of young violin students who entertained with fiddle tunes. Each of the sisters has since captured several age-group awards at the Oregon Old-Time Fiddle State Contest, and as a duo they took the top award in the 1999 Open Twin Fiddle division, the youngest-ever winners. "They learn by ear -- very talented," says past national fiddle champ Rudi Booher of Sisters, who coaches the pair once a month. "They're neat girls -- a lot of personality and enthusiasm."
