The Cariboo Chilcotin Youth Fiddlers will present their Gold and Fiddle Fever Concert Saturday, May 30 in the Gibraltar Room.
Gold and Fiddle Fever is a one-year project with fiddle music, narration and costumes highlighting the Cariboo Gold Rush with music from that era, says club representative Candice Magnowski.
In July, she says the youth fiddlers will take the show on the road for two performances on the Theatre Royal stage in Barkerville on July 11 and 12.
Last year our Fiddle History of Canada concert at the Gibraltar Room sold out,” Magnowski says.
“We hope this one will too.”
Tickts are available now at The Open Book and Cariboo GM at $10 for adults; $5 for children under age 12; and free for children under age five.
Doors at the Gibraltar Room, Saturday, May 30 at 6:30 p.m. and the concert begins at 7 p.m.
The youth fiddle group includes approximately 40 musicians who take lessons locally with Ingrid Johnston and participate in workshops with noted Canadian fiddlers such as Gordon Stobbe from Nova Scotia, Greg Nixon, and Kelli Trottier.
