About Us

Annapolis Bows & Violins is owned and operated by Rebecca Hannigan. Rebecca is an Annapolis native who graduated from MNSE Tech (Red Wing, MN) at the top of her class for String Instrument Repair. She has been working in music and violin shops for over seventeen years in Nashville, Chicago, and Maryland. She continued her luthier education by attending advanced bow repair/restoration and bowmaking workshops. Recognizing the need for a resource for string players in the Annapolis area, Rebecca returned to Maryland in 2017 to open Annapolis Bows & Violins on State Circle in Downtown Annapolis. In 2020, the shop moved to 177 Defense Highway.​​
