Regina Mänd is a young fiddler who is enthralled by the sound of old village musicians and enjoys playing dance music, often solo. Last autumn she began her studies in the folk music department of Viljandi Culture Academy. She is also a violin teacher at the folk music school on the island of Kihnu, which has inspired her to delve into the repertoire and style of Kihnu fiddlers. Due to her familiarity with Kihnu traditional music, she is also the musician for the Kihnu polkas workshop.
