Born in Dublin and based in New York City, Gregory Harrington raises the bar for violinists in the 21st century.
With his broad musical range, he has the unique ability to translate popular jazz, rock and pop music to classical violin virtuosity, juxtaposing Bach and Bob Dylan, Beethoven and Leonard Cohen, Astor Piazzolla and Philip Glass with Radiohead and Johnny Cash. Harrington’s cross-cultural and wide-reaching appeal has brought him to perform for Presidents and Vice Presidents, celebrities, heads of state, the United Nations and millions of classical, pop and jazz music fans around the globe.
He has released five critically acclaimed albums to date and his next release "Live from the stage of the Irish Repertory Theatre" will be released in October.
As a performer/arranger, his transcriptions of iconic songwriters, classical masterworks and film and movie score greats have all received critical acclaim in performance and on recordings.
He performs on a 2007 Stefan Peter Greiner violin.
