Calvin Vollrath Fiddle Concert

October 24 7:00 pm

World-class fiddler Calvin Vollrath will be playing music from a variety of genres at the Old Castle Theatre on October 24 at 7 PM. If you watched the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, you’ve heard him: five tunes shared the richness and variety of Canadian fiddling with the world.

Vollrath will be accompanied by Clinton Pelletier on guitar and Kimberly Holmes on keyboard. Rhea Labrie will step-dance to some lively music. The Old Time Fiddlers #9, led by Deb Schiavon, will open.

 Tickets: $20 at Pharmasave (Castlegar), Eddy’s Music (Nelson) and Bay Avenue Music (Trail) or contact Gary Shannon (250) 365-6694 or (250) 399-4546; or John or Sandra at 250-365-5514. The venue is small, so don't delay! A portion of proceeds go to benefit the local non-profit society Kootenay Old Time Fiddlers #9, whose mission is to promote, perform and preserve traditional Canadian fiddle music.

It has been said that Calvin Vollrath is to the fiddling world as Itzhak Perlman is to the classical violin world. Don’t miss this chance to see and hear topnotch fiddler Calvin Vollrath in concert!
