Hard-nosed traditional Cape Breton fiddle playing

One of the most celebrated Canadian roots musicians of all time, Ashley MacIsaac is bringing his hard-nosed, traditional Cape Breton style of fiddle playing to the Sagebrush Theatre stage with the Kamloops Symphony for two nights; this Friday, April 27 and Saturday, April 28, at 7:30 pm.

A renowned fiddle player, piano player, and step dancer, Ashley MacIsaac combines traditional fiddle playing with his own unique spin, mixing genres and updating Celtic music to appeal to a broader spectrum of fans. He has performed in the opening ceremonies at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics to a worldwide audience and with artists such as Phillip Glass and The Chieftains. Ashley also played with The White Stripes for their “Under Great White Northern Lights” Canadian tour which was turned in to a documentary.

This concert brings together Ashley’s dynamic fiddle playing with the full sound of the Kamloops Symphony. There will be a no-host bar in the Sagebrush Theatre lobby, selling beer and wine at both nights.

Tickets to this Kelson Group Pops concert are $45, $10 Students (under 19), $15 TD Soundcheck Members (19-34), and are available from Kamloops Live! Box Office.

Both evenings are nearly sold out, if you don’t have your tickets yet get them now before they’re all gone!
