Tom Dillon - Fiddle, Mandolin, Guitar

Tom is Barbwire's newest member. Originally from Illinois, he's been playing fiddle in bluegrass and country bands for over 40 years. Along the way, he's added mandolin, guitar, dobro, pedal steel guitar and accordion to his musical bag of tricks. He was the 2015 California State Twin Fiddling Champion and has placed in the top five at state fiddle championships in Kentucky, Illinois, and Wisconsin. In 2016, he took 5th place at the National Senior Fiddle Contest in Weiser, Idaho. When he's not performing, competing, jamming, or teaching music, you might run in to him on one of San Diego County's back country hiking trails.
