More About Me

Originally from Rocky Mount, VA, Mason Wright began studying classical violin when he was six years old, and bluegrass at the age of eight. When he was twelve, Mason founded The Wright Kids performing music with his siblings. The Wright Kids, consisting of Mason and two of his 4 younger siblings, recorded their first album "Havin' Fun" in 2005 which included guest artists Dale Perry on Banjo and former Lonesome River Band member Jeff Midkiff on Mandolin. Mason regularly participated in classical violin and bluegrass fiddle competitions, capturing top honors and multiple awards. In 2006, Mason was one of only eight violinists to be accepted to the Virginia Governor's School for Visual and Performing Arts, a month long arts program held at the University of Richmond. While Mason was busy playing bluegrass with the family band, he was also a first violinist in the Roanoke Youth Symphony Orchestra. After six years and two albums with the Wright Kids, Mason was off to begin his college career at Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, VA studying violin performance to further his classical education. Since 2009 Mason has been touring with bluegrass group Lonesome Highway.
