SPOTLIGHT on The Calgary Fiddlers
The Calgary Fiddlers are a musically gifted group of young people who love to perform and who appeal to audiences of all ages around the world. This exciting ensemble performs a variety of music, ranging from traditional folk fiddling, to country, bluegrass, Celtic, and even big band. Since the formation of The Calgary Fiddlers in 1981, this highly skilled group of amateur musicians, ranging from 14 to 18 years of age, has performed for live audiences, television and radio broadcasts. They have toured and performed in Monte Carlo, Monaco, London, Scotland, Ireland, Korea, and throughout the United States. In March 2012, these talented youth had the opportunity to work with the world-renowned fiddler, Natalie MacMaster, and have just received news they will be performing on the U.S.’s top-rated morning show, LIVE! with Kelly! early in April while the show goes to Banff to showcase the beauty and culture of Alberta, Canada.
