April Reed-Cox began playing cello at the age of 4. She studied for 12 years using the Suzuki Method, and entered college at 16 as a performance major. She holds a BMP and a MMP from Converse College in Spartanburg, SC. She has competed all across the country, and has performed with symphonies in SC, NC, GA, and ME. She moved to Maine to be with family and now performs with Maine ProMusica, the Bangor Symphony, The Ale House String Band, Putnam Smith, and numerous other folk artists. April melds classical and folk playing techniques in a unique way, creating an often surprising sonic experience. She lives on a farm in Waldoboro with her son and husband, a small flock of fiber sheep, two cats, one dog, one horse, and an ever-fluctuating gaggle of chickens.
April played for the Improv Cello Jam as part of the 2015 Moving Explorations in Community (ME in Community) event.
