Charlotte D'Evelyn

Charlotte D’Evelyn, Ph.D., is an ethnomusicologist and Assistant Professor of Music at Skidmore College. Her career as an ethnomusicologist began in 2002 when she first visited China for language study and began studies of the Chinese erhu (two-string fiddle). Her curiosity for this instrument launched her into a life-long interest in spike fiddles of the silk road and music cultures of East Asia. She is working on a book manuscript entitled Musicians at the Crossroads: Mongol Music and Ethnic Heritage in China (University of Hawai'i Press, anticipated publication in 2023) and is active as a performer and student of the Chinese erhu, viola (four-string European fiddle), morin khuur (two-string Mongolian horse-head fiddle), and khöömii (Mongolian throat singing).
