Dakota Karper, fiddler and vocalist, was born and raised in rural West Virginia where she grew up surrounded by Old-Time Appalachian String Band music. From a young age she took to this music with great abandon. Absorbing as much as possible, she apprenticed under fiddler Joe Herrmann, spent weeks at Augusta Heritage Center, and various music festivals in and around West Virginia as well as studying classical violin at the Shenandoah Arts Academy in Winchester, VA. After living in Baltimore, MD for 7 years, Dakota moved back to her roots in Capon Bridge, WV where she is now teaching Appalachian fiddle, as well as performing in the the surrounding areas.  Dakota was a founding member of the 'Short Mountain String Band', and now 'Hay Fever' which released its first album in June 2018.  Whether performing, teaching, or jamming, Dakota is always looking for a way to share her passion for mountain music.
