The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

Cana­dian Fid­dle Cham­pion Scott Woods and his All- Star band will present their lat­est show, Fid­dling Up A Storm, at the Alexan­dria United Church on Sun­day, April 29, at 7 p.m.

This up­lift­ing two- hour Bran­son- style live show fea­tures lots of Cana­dian old-time fid­dle mu­sic, tra­di­tional coun­try songs, Western swing tunes, coun­try Gospel favourites, fancy in­stru­men­tals, sweet har­monies, smooth vo­cals, sen­sa­tional step danc­ing, fam­ily hu­mour, in­spi­ra­tional sto­ries, and of course, some of Scott’s fa­mous trick fid­dling – front and back som­er­saults and walk­ing on a bar­rel --- all while play­ing his fid­dle.

Join­ing Scott on stage in Fid­dling Up A Storm will be his sis­ter, Ken­dra (Woods) Nor­ris, a multi- in­stru­men­tal­ist and cer­tainly no stranger to old­time fid­dling, hav­ing won the Cana­dian Duet Fid­dle Cham­pi­onship ti­tle three times with Scott, as well as sev­eral solo wins in var­i­ous classes in­clud­ing the 2016 Cana­dian Open (19-55 di­vi­sion). Also ap­pear­ing are Cana­dian Coun­try Mu­sic Award Win­ner and Gui­tar Player of the Year, Steve Piticco; bass player Pe­ter Sisk, Cana­dian Coun­try Mu­sic Award Win­ner and Drum­mer of the Year, Bill Car­ruthers, and cham­pion step dancer, 13year-old Leo Stock.

Pro­ceeds from the event will sup­port the United Church.
