What’s your sign? I’m a Libra. People say Libras are super balanced, which is crazy to me because I am the clumsiest person
I know.

Most underrated song that, in your opinion, should be a classic? “Vincent” by Don Mclean, but that might already be a classic. (It is often wrongly referred to as “Starry, Starry Night.”)

Biggest compliment you’ve ever gotten from a fan? Getting recognized outside of show settings by fans. Once, I was recognized in another state and another time at someone else’s show. It was very heartwarming. #celebrity

Favorite piece to perform? Probably “Sympathy for the Devil” with John Cranford and Martin Lesch. We really jam out on it.

What do you sing in the shower? Either songs that I need to practice, or I scat my heart out!

Favorite cereal? Definitely corn flakes mixed with yogurt.

At what venue do you most like to perform? Anywhere where the audience is paying attention and enjoying the music.

Most requested song at shows? “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” unfortunately. I used to know it when I was younger but I’ve gotten out of practice so now I have to disappoint people when they ask. 

First concert you attended. The first concerts were probably at Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas, but the first real “concert-concert” I went to was probably Bonnie Raitt. I was too young and dumb to appreciate it though, unfortunately.

Favorite artist? Depends on the day, but right now I’d say Hozier and Vulfpeck.

Place you go to get away from it all? My bed. (same girl, same)

Do you tweet, gram or book? What’s your handle? I sure do gram and book:
@alice.fiddles on Instagram and
@alicegouldmusic on Facebook. 

Go check me out!

Who would star as you in the epic retelling of your life? Taylor Swift.

First instrument you learned to play? 

Violin. People always ask me what the difference is between a violin and a fiddle. It’s all based on what genre you play. I started out classical, hence the use of “violin,” but since then I switched to bluegrass and rock, so I play “fiddle” now.

Song you were thrilled to finally master? 

What even is “mastering” anyway? I don’t know if I’ve really ever mastered something. I always feel like I can improve on my playing. But the songs I was pretty happy to nail in shows were “Blue Christmas” and “Angel from Montgomery.”

What do you wish you knew more about? Everything! People and what goes in their minds, the reason for certain actions, theory on my instruments, boys, what my dogs think – I feel like I have so much to learn still. It can be a little overwhelming at times.

What animal do you most identify with? My dog, because all she wants to do is lay in bed and be lazy.

If you got super famous and had to change your name, what would your new name be? Alice Gold, because Alice Gould is such a mouthful.

What famous musician would you love to play/sing a duet with? The and Nickel Creek. 

Where can we watch you perform?  Right now, it’s a bit of a slow season, but I’ll be playing at The Whiskey Room Live in Nashville with my band The Teafolk Trio this February 25! I’ll be back this summer at Coligny Plaza with John Cranford. Go follow me on Instagram and I will post updates as they come.
