You might say that Yogi really gets wrapped up in his
work. Yogi Baird launched his musical talents at the age of ten, when he
began playing in the school orchestra. It was known immediately by those
around him that Yogi Baird was destined for greatness.
In 1978, Yogi moved to Houston, Texas where he began practicing the art
of Hatha Yoga. Yogi's disciplined training includes no less that three to
six hours of yoga and stretching daily. Combining master yoga techniques
with his phenomenal fiddle talent, Yogi became "The Worlds Only Fiddle
Playing Contortionist". The unique ability of this twisted combination first
gained national attention in 1983 with Yogi's first television appearance on
ABC's hit show "That's Incredible". The same year, Yogi Baird's picture hit
the front page of newspapers worldwide, with an article in National
Enquirer. Since then, Yogi had appeared on major television shows worldwide.
Yogi recently performed on the "Crook & Chase show on ABC and Viva
Variety" on Comedy Central. He has toured Chile, Mexico, Singapore, Europe,
In spring of 1998, Yogi released his third album, a single and a video

come without hard work, dedication and discipline. Discipline that takes to
