Calvin Vollrath on fiddle

As we get closer to Canada Day I’d like to share a YouTube video featuring another of my fave Canadian fiddlers – Calvin Vollrath. Here’s Maurice Billette’s Reel. Clinton Pelletier is on guitar and Mr. Vollrath’s wife Rhea Labrie is step-dancing.

Calvin Vollrath has been playing fiddle since he was a boy. He’s written over 600 fiddle tunes and has twice been North American Fiddle Champion. Mr. Vollrath lives in Alberta and plays in the Métis style.

    I know you well enough to know that as soon as you’ve conquered the fiddle…you’re taking up step dancing…don’t think I can’t see that…:)

Have your say...
