There is really no beginning to Danielle's love for the fiddle and the music that she plays. She was born surrounded by excellent musicians.She has played on stage at Merle Fest with the Kruger Brothers, Roland White, and Chris Thile. She has performed with the Kruger Brothers at their annual festival, Carolina in the Fall, since its conception. Strictly Clean and Decent has welcomed Danielle and her music for many years. She played with them when they opened for Ricky Skaggs. She has won over-all and age divisions at Fiddlers Grove, the Galax Old Time Fidders Convention, the Georgia Mountain State Fair, the North Carolina Mountain State Fair, and in 2006 was, at that time, the youngest fiddler to win Fiddler of the Festival at Fiddlers Grove. Danielle is a 2008 Western Carolina Heritage Scholarship recipient. Ralph and Angie Toomey, Buddy Melton, Matt Pruett, and Marc Pruett are amoung her earliest influences.
