Trot­tier’s tunes to peal from Peace Tower

The Glengarry News - - Front Page -

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.
