Van Diemen's Fiddles (VDF) is a quartet of Tassie fiddlers combining the exceptional talents of Van Diemen’s Band artistic director Julia Fredersdorff on baroque violin, Klezmer and folk fiddler Rachel Meyers, and Classical/ folk/ experimental violinist Emily Sheppard. In 2024 they are joined by modern/Baroque violist and Freedman Fellow Katie Yap.

Equally at home performing in concert halls or pubs, VDF tour across Tasmania creating community projects and accessible, multi-disciplinary cultural events across a variety of audience demographics.
