Gabriel "Gabe" Witcher (born June 11, 1978) is an American fiddle player and singer, possibly best known for being a member of the band Punch Brothers. Witcher started fiddling at the age of 5, and competed in Southern California fiddling competitions until he was 14. He is an in-demand session player, and has provided violin duties for numerous film scores such as Brokeback Mountain and Toy Story.

He performed with Eve 6 on the Horrorscope tour performing bass and backing vocals, allowing Max Collins more mobility onstage. He also performed on the track "Anytime" from the 2001 film Out Cold.

In 2010, he joined the Dave Rawlings Machine to play some tour dates with the band. The lineup consisted of Rawlings, Gillian Welch, two members of Old Crow Medicine Show, and Witcher.[1]
