SUNDAY, AUGUST 23 & TUESDAY, AUGUST 25 – US and Canadian Fiddle Champion Shane Cook is joined by local talent Kyle Waymouth on guitar and London Ontario’s Joe Philips on bass.
A Canadian and US National fiddle champion, Shane Cook captivates audiences with technically thrilling and adventurous performances. Noted by The Canadian Fiddlers’ Hall of Fame as one of the “finest fiddlers in the world today,” Cook has distinguished himself as a master of the Canadian old-time fiddle tradition. He also excels at styles ranging from Irish and Scottish to French-Canadian and Bluegrass. After a concert at The Opera House in Boston, the Boston Herald proclaimed “Shane Cook’s Celtic fiddling was enough to break hearts.”
As a multi-instrumentalist and a premier Ottawa-Valley style step dancer, Kyle Waymouth is in high demand. He is a five-time Canadian Open Step Dance Champion, four-time Canadian Open Group Step Dancing Champion with his group Powerhouse, and a Canadian Open Clogging Champion.
