Vaughn Asselstine started her musical journey when she was eight years old, learning to tickle the ivories. From there she moved on to squeezing the accordion and strumming the guitar. During the early 70s she played with the Alive and Trucking Theater Company and along the way to becoming a college-educated computer geek she snuck in some study of jazz and music theory. A few years ago Vaughn started playing the bass. She fell in love with the unique combination of rhythm and melody that the bass brings as the foundation of many types of music. She has performed with multiple old-time, bluegrass, Cajun and jazz groups in Minneapolis and is enthusiastic about playing with all of them.
