Todd has been playing the fiddle since he was seven years old, and has combined his fiddling and storytelling for performances throughout the southeast.

He was named last year&squo;s 18-And-Under Old-Time Fiddler at the annual Fiddler&squo;s Grove Festival, and also won his age category at this year&squo;s National Youth Storytelling Showcase in Tennessee, and will be performing later this year at the National Storytelling Festival&squo;s Youthful Voices program.

Todd lives in Union Mills, N.C., where he hunts, fishes, woodcarves and collects wild mushrooms, as well as keeping bees and chickens. He is an active member of 4-H and is currently serving at the 4-H Council President for Rutherford County.
