Adrianna Ciccone Trio: 3rd Annual Fall Concert
Fri, 28 October 2016, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
Few countries love the fiddle as much as Canada, and few young Canadian fiddlers today can show off the breadth and range of North American fiddling like Adrianna Ciccone. A native of Timmins, Ontario, on her much-awaited debut album, The Back of Winter, she crosses back and forth across the continent with ease, showcasing Scottish reels from Cape Breton, crooked French-Canadian brandys from Québec, the rollicking rhythms of Ottawa Valley stepdancing tunes, all the way down to Southern Appalachian stringband tunes; she even incorporates Irish and Métis influences. The Instrumental Artist of the Year award, presented to her in 2015 by the Canadian Folk Music Awards, underscores the power of Adrianna’s fiddling and the range of her vision.
