Biography

Noted for her warm stage presence and stylish, boundary-pushing interpretations of Italian Baroque violin sonatas and concerti, violinist Lindsey Tootle is a sought-after Baroque violinist and historical performance specialist based in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Lindsey re-entered the classical music scene in early 2023 after a hiatus spanning six years, and has quickly established a reputation in Cincinnati and expanding regionally as an ambitious and rising force in the field of historical performance. Lindsey has performed in concert with Harmonie Universelle (USA) and members of the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra and New Trinity Baroque. Lindsey joined Cincinnati-based Seven Hills Baroque (7HB) in 2023 as their chief Baroque violinist, and serves on the leadership team as 7HB’s Promotions and Media Manager.

Originally from Huntsville, Alabama, Lindsey first showed a propensity for music in infancy, and began violin at age three. Since her earliest formative years, Lindsey’s never-ending passion and deep affection for Baroque music has been the North Star of her musical education and career. She studied both modern and Baroque violin on scholarship at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa with Gesa Kordes (Baroque violin), Dr. Don Fader (musicology/historical performance practice), and Jenny Gregoire (violin). Lindsey’s lifelong musical and research interests include lesser-known composers and dance music of the early to middle French Baroque, and the intersection of historical performance and American traditional repertoire, inspired by the folk music she learned during her youth in the Appalachian foothills.

When she isn’t performing, Lindsey enjoys her years-long career as a paralegal. After starting in criminal defense and family law, she found her niche at an immigration law firm, where she walks hand-in-hand with clients globally on their immigration journeys. Lindsey stays quite busy managing dual careers in law and music, but they’re more alike than one might first believe, and she finds immense satisfaction in both.

In her free time, you might find her running, exploring the outdoors, visiting family and friends, watching Alabama Crimson Tide football, or having a good laugh. Lindsey has been a resident of Cincinnati since 2021, where she is renovating her first home in Colerain Township with her husband, John, and their very silly cat, Pepper.
