American award-winning jazz violinist and bluegrass fiddler, multi-instrumentalist, session player and educator.

When he was eight years old, Contreras began studying with legendary Nashville session violinist Buddy Spicher, who taught him about Western Swing and familiarized the precocious young fiddler with jazz standards.

At the age of ten Billy joined Buddy Spicher's Nashville Swing Band, with Contreras and Spicher becoming regulars at Wolfy's in Downtown Nashville.
