Chautauqua 150 presents:
The Canadian Fiddle Project brings together seven of Canada's finest traditional musicians and step dancers, and celebrates one of our nation?s strongest musical traditions; fiddle music! This special one-time concert production was created by longtime friends and collaborators, April Verch (Ottawa Valley) and Calvin Vollrath (Alberta), specifically for Chautauqua 150 Festival. Through music, dance and storytelling, April and Calvin along with Neil Beaton (Cape Breton native) and Daniel Gervais (Alberta) will pay tribute to the regional styles and legends of the fiddle that have come to define this unmistakably rich tradition from coast to coast. This ace quartet of fiddlers will be accompanied by Trent Bruner on piano and Derek Stremel on guitar, and special guest step dancer Rhea Labrie!
