Renowned Canadian Fiddle Champion Scott Woods and his All-Star band present an...
Old Time Country Christmas.
Featuring: Scott Woods - (Fiddle & Vocals)
Scott’s love of fiddling has been passed down through six generations. He studied classical violin from age four, and plays several instruments including drums, bass, piano, guitar, saxophone, and clarinet. Scott is a multiple winner of the Canadian Open Fiddle Contest, the Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Championships, and a Canadian Fiddle Entertainer of the Year. Scott’s famous trick fiddling routine – where he turns somersaults and walks on a barrel while playing his fiddle, has earned him the nickname “The Flippin’ Fiddler”, and three consecutive Canadian Novelty Fiddle Championship titles. For seven years Scott was the musical director of ‘Memories of Don Messer’s Jubilee’ which toured extensively in Canada. In 2018 Scott was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Association, for his extensive contribution to the preservation of Canadian Fiddle Music. Scott lives in Fergus, ON.
