Olaf Lind began studying the violin at the age of four with the London Suzuki Group, and began performing improvisationally at the age of fourteen. After studying viola at the Interlochen Arts Academy he took a break from the pursuit of classical training to further investigate improvisation, street performance and folk forms. Equally at home playing classically or improvising, Olaf played with the Eau Claire Chamber Orchestra for their first eleven seasons, and currently is playing with Eggplant Heroes and AcoustiHoo. He also frequently sits in with various performers in the Chippewa Valley and teaches violin and viola at the Eau Claire Music School. As Matt Ledger wrote in Volume One Magazine, “but what you need to know is that the violin is electric and Olaf Lind is going to rock your face off with it.”
