Fiddling Up A Storm in Alexandria April 29
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.
