Fiddlejam Performs at Simms Park This Weekend
July 21, 2014
Come enjoy fiddling, an integral part of our Canadian culture, with Fiddlejam playing this Sunday July 27 at 7:00pm at Simms Park. This performance is part of a free summer concert series hosted by the City of Courtenay.
Fiddlejam is an eclectic group of 20 to 30 or so musicians which started in Comox a decade ago led by International fiddler Trent Freeman.
Though primarily a fiddle group, accordions, banjos, guitars, mandolins and piano also fill out the sound with the occasional saxophone thrown in for good measure. Fiddlejam includes adults and youth and the band plays a variety of tunes ranging from traditional Old Time and Celtic, to Swing and Bluegrass.
Throughout the fall they play for popular Contra Dances at the Big Yellow Merville Hall in...you guessed it...Merville, BC
Other featured Simms Park performances include Duo of Duos on August 10, The Blues Legends on August 17, XLR8 on August 24 and Ralph Barrat and the Sharp 7 on August 31.
