Trottier’s tunes to peal from Peace Tower
Veteran performer Kelli Trottier’s tunes will ring out from a high-level iconic stage today, May 17, at noon.
The Dunvegan native’s “Fiddle Bill” and “Canada 150” will be played on the Peace Tower carillon by carilloneur Andrea McGrady during a Celebration of Canadian Fiddle Tunes. Ms. Trottier’s “Fiddle Bill” was composed for the introduction of a bill calling for the designation of National Fiddling Day.
As the title indicates, “Canada 150” was written to mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation.
After her pieces have pealed from the tower, Ms. Trottier and other violinists will attend a private Senate reception.
The third Saturday of May is National Fiddling Day, designated under a law adopted by the House of Commons and the Senate in 2015.
