Fiddler, songwriter, and classical violist Diana Ladio joined Stella in the beginning of 2010. Recently graduated from the University Of Michigan School Of Music, Diana began touring on the front lines of the Chelsea House Orchestra in Chelsea, Michigan. She went on to co-found the Celtic Fusion duo, String Cheese, who recently performed as soloists with the Battle Creek Symphony. She brings classical, Celtic and old-time fiddle, original fiddle compositions and occasionally a fourth harmony to Stella!. Diana brings young energy coupled with musical maturity to the table, and her fast fiddlin' and passion for playing keeps everyone on their toes!
Diana is an avid runner, and believes she was a red-haired, fair-skinned Irish lass in her former life. Though she may be the baby of the group, she possesses an old soul and is wise beyond her years.
