Summer Series - Calvin Vollrath - Fiddle music

Presented by: Shenkman Arts Centre Presents in partnership with the Heart of Orléans BIA

Join us for a weekly dose of fun at our summer lunchtime series!

Calvin Vollrath is a fiddling prodigy and North American Fiddler’s Hall of Fame inductee. Having received his first fiddle at the age of 8, Calvin has never looked back. To date, he has composed near 700 tunes, many of which have become standard contest and dance tunes played across North America and Europe. He has played on countless recordings of other artists including Ian Tyson and Colleen Peterson.

Hundreds of fiddlers have recorded Calvin’s tunes including Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy.

These free concerts will take place every Thursday in July and August. The performances will present a wonderfully diverse selection of local artists and performers.
