Elisa Miro has led a colorful life encompassing a wide range of life
experiences, playing electric and acoustic violin or fiddle in many
professional venues before and after arriving in New York City in the
mid-80's. She retired as a member of New York City's Local 802,
AFL-CIO, Associated Musicians of Greater New York, to move to the NY
countryside in late 1990. She hails most recently from upstate New York,
where she led another life as co-owner of Indigo Stables, a public horse
riding ranch catering to the tourists and residents of Sullivan County, NY.
She also rode to foxhounds as whipper-in to the Huntsman of Windy
Hollow Hunt. Elisa has a wonderful son living in New York City.
Upon leaving the farm winters in 2004 and arriving in Florida, she has
returned to almost full-time playing, thanks to meeting many wonderful
musicians here in SW Florida. Having been pushed onto piano and
violin as a child by her mother, her original musical training was classical
music. Elisa's appreciation and love of various styles has broadened out
over the years, some of which can be detected in her own playing style.
