"Don't be fooled by her shy demeanour; Jessica Wedden is a fiercely talented musician, with seemingly limitless potential. Her mastery of the fiddle would be impressive for someone who has spent a lifetime honing their craft, but it's especially inspiring coming from someone so early in their music career. I'm always in awe of Jessica's talent and trajectory whenever I get the opportunity to share the stage with her."
