(Bethany was born in Ft. Worth, Texas in 1982, just two and a half years before she began to play the violin. She spent her first ten years studying classical violin with the late Helen Robertson, a 50 year veteran of the Ft. Worth Symphony, who not only nurtured her technically, but also instilled in her a passion for music. Bethany has been performing almost as long as she has been playing. In her sophomore year of college she began to branch out from her precise classical training to worship music, bluegrass, and other genres. In August of 2006, she moved to Nashville, TN to broaden her musical horizons. She currently plays with Christian author/songwriter Kelly Minter, serves on the worship team at St. Bartholomew's Church, and freelances for artists including Laura Story and Andrew Peterson. She released her debut instrumental album, Songs From Along The Way: A Live Recording, in December 2013 that CCM magazine gave 4 stars and kind words. She and her husband Keith have a baby girl named Clare and the whole family enjoys traveling, reading, being outdoors, and spending time with their cat and flock of backyard chickens. They also own an adorable guest house in the 12 South neighborhood of Nashville and a cabin in Pigeon Forge, TN that are available for rent on AirBnB. (click buttons below for more info)
Bethany holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Communications from Mississippi College in Clinton, MS and a Masters of Health Education from Mississippi University for Women in Columbus, MS. Although she doesn't often interact with science or health related topics, she credits her long hours in the lab and writing grad school papers as the training ground for developing the organizational skills needed for her current work with women's events and life on the road.
