Maria Cherwick is certainly one of the busiest musicians in town! A highly trained classical violinist, she is also an accomplished fiddler who fearlessly (well mostly) tackles jazz, traditional styles and bluegrass with a skill and musicality that has made her one of the most sought after side musicians in St. John’s.

In fact, in addition to a slew of awards and nominations with her trad thrash punk outfit the Kubasonics, Maria was awarded the MusicNL Side Musician of the Year for 2018.

Aside from all that, she has performed from Victoria to St. John’s, as well as throughout Ukraine as a folk musician. She has played with a number of ensembles, in styles ranging from Celtic, to Old Time, to Eastern European thrash polka. In addition, she also studies, performs, and has a passion for improvisation and jazz. Maria can be seen frequently performing fiddle music in and around St. John’s with the Kubasonics, the Old Contemporaries, Strong Harbor Strings, the Newfoundland Symphony and many others.
