Julie Penner (born 1976) is a Canadian violinist who has played with The FemBots, Broken Social Scene, Do Make Say Think, Hylozoists, The Lowest of the Low and The Weakerthans. She is a graduate of the Immersion française program at Kelvin High School. She currently works as the music producer for Stuart McLean's The Vinyl Cafe on CBC Radio.


Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Penner began classical violin lessons as a preschooler. She quickly showed an aptitude for the instrument, and continued improving her skills. At the age of 15, she quit playing the violin for a couple of years, but then took it up again to start a band with her friends. Since then, she estimates she has recorded or performed live with more than 40 different groups.[1]
