Atlanta native Evan Few has established himself as a leader in his generation of historical performance specialists, having studied and performed repertoire ranging from Monteverdi to Gershwin on period instruments. An assertive, collaborative instrumentalist, he has appeared on stages across the globe with some of its most prestigious early music ensembles, such as Anima Eterna Brugge, Bach Collegium Japan, and the Taverner Consort. Evan is a core member of the Carmel Bach Festival, Associate Concertmaster of the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra, Principal Second Violin of Philharmonie Austin, and co-founder of Filament.
Evan received his principal violin training at Oberlin College (BM. MM) as a pupil of Marilyn McDonald, and pursued further studies in string quartet performance at Rice University and in baroque violin at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in Den Haag (MM). He has participated in the making of numerous recordings available from Accent, CPO, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, and Zig-Zag Territoires, among others. His violin was built for him in 2010 by Matthieu Besseling of Amsterdam, modeled after early Stradivarius examples; he plays with baroque bows by Luis Emilio Rodriguez Carrington (2011) and Thomas Pitt (2016).
Evan lives in Philadelphia and is a devoted cook and yogi.
