2016 World Fiddle Day Toronto started with fiddling workshops on Cape Breton, Ukrainian, Appalachian, and Latin styles taught by guest artists: Dan MacDonald, Mark Marcyk, Rosalyn Dennett and Yosvani Castaneda.
After the workshops, each of our guest artists did a short concert to demonstrate their virtuosity! Then to top it off they co-wrote a theme tune and then each played it in their unique style – throwing it back and forth and landing it with group panache!

Over 300 people arrived to fiddle or to watch!
We had a terrific time playing the Around the World Jam with House Band: Tom Leighton, piano; David Woodhead, bass; Ed Hanley, percussion; Martin Van De Ven, Clarinet; led by Anne Lederman: fiddle and Lea Kirstien: fiddle and cell0. (see bios)
