Scott Woods Bringing “FIDDLING UP A STORM” to Kingston

in Releases by

Renowned Canadian Fiddle Champion Scott Woods and his All-Star band present Fiddling Up A Storm!

This uplifting 2-hour Branson-style live show features lots of Canadian Old Time Fiddle music, Traditional Country songs, Western Swing tunes, Country Gospel favorites, fancy instrumentals, sweet harmonies, smooth vocals, sensational step dancing, family humor, inspirational stories, and of course some of Scott’s famous trick fiddling – front and back somersaults and walking on a barrel  – all while playing his fiddle.

You will hear the flurry of fast fingers on a fiddle or guitar similar to a hurricane or twister, or maybe the calm before the storm.

Scott will be bringing the show to Kingston on Saturday, August 18 starting at 7pm in the Matthew J. Dawe Memorial Legion, 4034 Bath Road.  Tickets can be purchased at the Matthew J. Dawe Memorial Legion or call toll free 1-855- SCOTTWOODS (1-855-726-8896) to charge by phone.

Joining Scott onstage in Fiddling Up A Storm is his sister, Kendra (Woods) Norris – a multi-instrumentalist and certainly no stranger to old time fiddling, having won the Canadian Duet Fiddle Championship title 3 times with Scott, as well as several solo wins in various classes including the 2016 Canadian Open (19-55 division).

Also onstage are Canadian Country Music Award Winner and Guitar Player of the Year, Steve Piticco; Bass Player Peter Sisk, Canadian Country Music Award Winner and Drummer of the Year, Bill Carruthers and champion Step Dancer 13-year-old Leo Stock.
