The Nanaimo Youth Fiddlers are bringing their music to Lantzville! Join them on Friday, May 30 at 7:00pm at Costin Hall for a great night of traditional and contemporary fiddle music. This group was formed approximately two years ago by Trish Clair and Geoff Horrocks of Cross Canada Fiddle. The group consists of six fiddlers ranging in age from 12-16 and one youth guitar player. The members of the group work diligently to improve their sound both individually and as an ensemble. Since they are a small group they can creatively explore harmonies and tune arrangements.
The youngest member of the group, Quinton Etheridge-Pedden, is a Lantzville resident who attends Seaview Elementary.
People can expect to see and hear some of Nanaimo’s talented young fiddlers playing together as a group. The music is lively and varied, from Eastern European, Irish, old time, French Canadian with a little Bluegrass thrown in for good measure. Interspersed between the group numbers will be individual solos where the audience will get experience the uniqueness of the players.
People should come out to be entertained by some of Nanaimo’s fine young talent. It will be a fun tow tapping evening.
Cross Canada Fiddle was created by Trish Clair and Geoff Horrocks to teach fiddle and classical violin to students of all ages and abilities. Both Trish and Geoff believe that it is never too late to start playing an instrument. The cognitive and social benefits are numerous.
Tickets for the Nanaimo Youth Fiddlers concert are available at Tom Lee Music. Tickets are $10 per person.
