And every Thursday, the Art&Seek Artist Spotlight, looks at the personal journey of a North Texas creative. Today, the light falls on Petra Kelly.

She's not a band leader or a star vocalist. But the violinist has played and recorded with more than two dozen bands and is a mainstay of the Denton music scene. She’s the epitome of a gigging musician.
