We are really looking forward to our big year end concert May 25th! We are so greatful to have the support of the BC Arts Council behind us this year to enable us to bring some amazing fiddlers from across Canada to Victoria to teach us their styles of fiddling. We have taken all these tunes and will showcase them for you in a concert of "Fiddling Across Canada". Featuring Troy MacGillivray from Nova Scotia, Jenny Lester from Smithers, BC, and of course Ivonne Hernandez, our Director. This concert will be the week after recording our 3rd album, and a pretty epic year. We'll have some hot tunes we can't wait to show you!!
Thankyou to all who joined us for Victoria Trad Weekend! We had the most amazing weekend performing and learning from some of our favourite fiddlers from across Canada! Shane Cook, Calvin Vollrath, Troy MacGillivray and Daniel Lapp - and as always, Ivonne Hernandez. They all put us through our paces and we learned the coolest tunes! We are working them up right now to perform for you all at our big concert May 25th at the Dave Dunnett Theatre!
