Rachel Barton Pine was a child prodigy on the violin, starting on the instrument at age three and making her professional debut just 4 years later. She lost her leg in a life-changing train accident at age 20 and she is still a world renowned, award winning violinist, having performed with orchestras, ensembles and as a soloist around the world. For her latest CD, Barton Pine returned to her earliest musical memories by recording 25 lullabies for her new album Violin Lullabies. Digging deep into classical music and traditional folk tunes, her collection reminds us of familiar tunes as well as introducing listeners to works written by lesser known composers. Barton Pine also discusses her love of heavy metal music and her metal band Earthen Grave.
