Session Work

Chris Sexton has long been a sought-after session musician in bluegrass as well as other genres of music.  With a discography of appearances on over 20 albums and film and television credits, Chris is available to make your recording project shine just a little bit more with live string parts or solo string parts that have appeared on songs ranging in style from country, bluegrass, classical, jazz, Texas swing, hip-hop, alternative, pop, rock, and all genres in between.  Chris is able to arrange string parts on the spot or in advance and record all the parts – violin, viola, and cello, and on occasion piano and bass.  Chris is also skilled at performing in local and regional orchestras and chamber groups pending his availability with his bluegrass band and instructional schedule.


Here is a partial list of bands, orchestras, composers and individuals with whom Chris has recorded, performed, or worked with on musical projects.  References are given upon request.
