Event Description

Fiddles Across the Rockies: Coastline in Concert with the Calgary Fiddlers and Juno Award Winning Artist Ivonne Hernandez.

Few countries love the fiddle as much as Canada, and few young Canadian fiddlers today can show off the breadth and range of fiddling like Coastline and visiting superstars the Calgary Fiddlers.

This is an evening not to be missed when two of Canada’s leading young fiddle ensembles come together to perform on the same stage for a once in a lifetime concert event. Joining these inspiring ensembles will be five-time North American Fiddle Champion and Juno Award Winning Artist Ivonne Hernandez.

A recent 2015 two time nominee for Young Performers of the Year and Instrumental Group of the Year from the Canadian Folk Music Awards underscores the power of Coastline’s musicianship and range of their vision and passion.

Coastline represented Canada and toured Scotland during the summer of 2015 as part of the Aberdeen International Youth Festival, to rave reviews. They released their second CD titled “The High Drive” in 2016 and now look forward to sharing the stage with Calgary’s powerhouse fiddle ensemble, The Calgary Fiddlers.

The Calgary Fiddlers are a musically gifted, world renowned ensemble of young musicians who love to perform. Formed in 1981 this exciting ensemble have entertained audiences around the world with their unique blend of ensemble fiddling, youthful exuberance and brilliant musicality. This exciting ensemble bursts on to the stage to deliver a high energy performance of a wide range of music from traditional folk fiddling to country, bluegrass, Celtic and even big band. The enthusiasm of youth mixed with the precision of highly trained and musically gifted talent empowers the group to energize and uplift. Along with their retro 50’s western or Celtic cowboy outfits, the Calgary Fiddlers add a uniquely “Calgary” charm.

This concert will be the perfect family show to kick off the summer season and by bringing youth together from two of Canada’s provinces it’s a perfect way to Celebrate Canada 150. An epic event not to be missed, all while having fun and supporting the live music community and youth in Victoria!

“Coastline isn't just an inspiring youth ensemble nurturing the next generation of young musicians in Victoria, it's one of the most dynamic and interesting groups working in roots music today featuring fabulous arrangements, fantastic soloists and an incredibly diverse repertoire. Working with this group was one of the highlights of my 2016 performance calendar.” ~ Oliver Swain

“Coastline is magic. Their synergy transcends their youth. Ivonne Hernandez at the helm is giving them a rare musical experience that they will hold in their hearts forever as does everyone who hears them play. This dynamic and talented group will blow your socks off!” ~ Colleen Eccleston http://www.coastlinefiddle.com http://www.calgaryfiddlers.com http://www.ivonnehernandez.com
