Ian and Dylan have been happily playing together for over 20 years.
Here is some of his story.
Ian Mardon grew up in Halifax, Canada in a musical family. His mother played piano and organ; and due to the influence of his violin playing father, he started violin at the age of four.
When he was six years old, he fell backwards onto his violin and he broke it. But it did not end his career. He became a child violin star on Canadian ATV for the Maritime Provinces, playing old time fiddle.
He went on to discover Led Zeppelin, got all kinds of crazy notions, got his Master of Music in New England Conservatory in Boston, went to Hamburg where he teamed up with Dylan Vaughn.
He played Phantom of the Opera, founded several classical chamber music ensembles, classical orchestras and duos, and a heavy metal band, Dilechmoor.
He also played the theme for an Academy Award winning short film, Die Rote Jacke (The Red Jacket).
In addition to his concert performances, Ian is an accomplished composer including works for Mardon & Vaughn and the Hamburg Festival Orchestra.
