Graham Townsend (June 16, 1942 – December 3, 1998) was a Canadian fiddler, mandolin player, pianist and composer active from the 1950s through the 1990s. Townsend grew up in East York, Ontario. He was visually impaired from an early age. He started playing fiddle as a child and was winning competitions as early as nine years old. Among his important and early influences was Don Messer, for whom Townsend’s father Fred was his square dance caller.

Visually impaired from childhood, Graham Townsend was raised in the Ottawa Valley community of Buckingham, Que, where he began to play violin as a child. Returning to Toronto, he won a CNE '30 and under' fiddling competition at the age of nine and subsequently learned repertoire and technique there from the Irish fiddlers Tom McQuestion and Billy Crawford. In 1990 Silver Eagle issued Townsend's first CD, 100 Fiddle Hits - 35th Anniversary Album (SED-10962). Graham Townsend - Still Going Strong (Holborne/Rodeo 8044) followed in 1997, and Country Licks and All that Jazz in 1997 (Margaree Sound 6397201, recorded in 1982). Townsend recorded some 200 of his 400 fiddle tunes.

Townsend’s latest solo effort, Empath, continues his glorious sonically-schizoid journey, as he refuses to be aligned to a single style (although elements of metal and prog are steadily detected). The Good: Whether it be Strapping Young Lad, Devin Townsend Project, The Devin Townsend Band, or simply Devin Townsend, HevyDevy usually gets to call the shots - and we get another album that is 100% solely the entalist’s musical vision (hec. e’s even the album’s producer).
