Aaron Castilla - Fiddle, Mandolin, Guitar, Vocals
Spokane, WA. native Aaron Castilla, at age 24, has been playing music since he was 8 years old. He studied under many notable musicians including five-time National Grand Champion Tony Ludiker, and two-time National Grand Champion Jaydean Ludiker. Those musicians ended up leading him to the Doo-Wah Riders. Aaron himself has won the Inland Northwest Bluegrass Association Best Fiddle Player Award; he is a two-time winner at the Northwest Regional Fiddle Competition, and has placed in the Top 10 at the National Old-Time Fiddlers Competition.
Aaron is a triple threat too! Not only does he shred on the fiddle, but he also is proficient on the mandolin and the acoustic guitar. He'd like to give a big shout out to all of his friends up at Ludiker Music in Spokane, Washington.
