Fiddling Around the World
At the moment, the newly formed World Fiddle Ensemble is joyously enveloped in a 3 month stint of exploring string music from around the world. So far the journey has proven to be a thorough one. The Ensemble, who meet on Wednesday evenings at 7pm, have not only immersed themselves in the music of each region they have studied, but also in their food and drink.
During the month of August, the WFE let the music take them all the way to Cape Breton Island for a closer look at the rich folk and culinary traditions of that area.
In September the Fiddlers gathered for a bountiful feast of poutine and Fin du Monde, when their musical expedition brought them to our nation’s party capital, good ‘ol PQ.
Each month culminates in a final performance where the Ensemble’s repertoire for each studied region is performed in a traditional jam style.
Next up, a visit to Scandinavia for a glance at Hardanger fiddles, Swedish meatballs and why not a tall glass of Lingonberry juice to wash it all down.
If you’ve got a thing for food, drink and fiddling, join us for this distinctive experience.
