Brigit O’Regan is a violinist/fiddler with 20 years of practice and 10 years of professional, freelance performance under her belt. After being strictly classical for many years, she rebelled at a young age and now is most known for her Top 40 Pop, Rock, Hip-Hop, Fiddle, and covers of pop culture themes such as Game of Thrones.
Recently discovering her unique gift of instant improvisation stemmed from a “mis-wiring” of the brain called synesthesia, she is one of the newest members of the Canadian Synesthesia Association, located here in Toronto. She is well sought after for this gift, being able to play along to almost anything by ear instantly or with very little practice. This has proved extremely useful for collaborating with all different styles of artists, studio sessions and last minute gigs.
Solo and with groups, she has performed around the world (Austria, Hungary, United Kingdom, Belgium, France, Canada), playing to crowds of up to 17,000 in world class venues, or more private shows of a few dozen in pubs, theatres and mid-sized musical venues.
Within just four months of moving to Toronto in late August 2015, she found herself sharing the stage with world-class performers and Juno award winners, and has done shows with high end, award winning entertainment companies all across the GTA and continues to perform full-time.
