Get your fanciest cold weather duds on and come out to the Snowcastle's most regal dance.
We are pleased to welcome back Gordon Stobbe and JJ Guy to our stage. Gordon Stobbe has just been named to the Order of Canada “for his commitment to the preservation of fiddle music as a performer, composer and teacher.” He's a familiar face around the north as a teacher and an exquisite musician. Joining him will be JJ Guy, an award winning fiddler from Saskatchewan. Opening for Gordon & JJ will be young fiddler Alice Twa & Baby Brian's Country Club.
Fifteen-year-old Alice Twa delivers a beautiful whirlwind of Celtic fiddle with inspiration and instruction from some of Cape Breton's finest. She is deeply involved in the Yellowknife fiddling community, performing with an advanced youth fiddle group (the "Fiddle Cats"), teaching new fiddlers of all ages, and sitting on the board of the Aurora Fiddle Society. She also composes, debuting her first original works on her 2016 album, "Fiddle from the Garage". Despite her age, she can also occasionally be found on stage at the Black Knight Pub's Maritime Night.
Baby Brian’s Country Club has been bringing their brand of hokey-honky tonk to neigbourhood watering holes for months. You will hear cornball comedy; fictitious tall-tales; pickin’ n grinin’; country croonin; and hootin’ n hollerin’
Known for bringing barn-burning bass and twang, Baby Brian is for the old country, folk and two-steppin appreciators.
