Scarlet Rivera burned a hole in the fabric of rock history with her pioneering electrified violin sound. Based in classical roots Ms. Rivera was bending the capabilities of current accepted norms by playing all styles of music. From the Jazz of Ornette Coleman to the robust innovation of a violin amid a 17 piece cuban band, Scarlet was a revolutionary at the start, an iconoclast of 70’s rock sound. Her discovery by Bob Dylan in 1975 set in motion the tapestry of a new sound and era. Leading the way for strong female voices in instrumentation and paving the highway for the acceptance of strings in rock music. Bob Dylan recognized the genius of Ms. Rivera and her unique vision and use of violin much like a lead guitar. Their first collaboration was the legendary 1976 album ‘Desire’, and the rest is history!

Scarlet Rivera enjoys an honored place among the world’s most prominent, active and versatile violinists. She is known for her contributions to countless recordings and performances of the most influential artists of our time. She played a pivotal role as a member of Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue and 4 additional multi-platinum albums. Scarlet continued her journey of expression and creativity while performing with such treasured legends as Indigo Girls, Tracy Chapman, Eric Andersen, Keb 'Mo, Peter Maffay, David Johansen and Sylvia Tyson of ‘Ian and Sylvia’, and five time Grammy winner Cindy Cashdollar. Ms. Rivera’s abilities are wide ranging and have enjoyed the spotlight in music’s most hallowed Carnegie Hall with The Duke Ellington Orchestra as well as The Kennedy Center, and the Carnival of Venice, Italy.
