On Friday night, I spent a wonderful evening listening to April Verch, one of Canada’s best fiddlers. She was accompanied by two guitarists, who were both incredible as well. It was the opening night of their Strung tour and I’m so glad that I heard them. April Verch is also an exceptional stepdancer and singer, so it was quite the night.
That’s one of the good things about living here … we’re on the route between Winnipeg/Toronto/ Montreal and Calgary/ Vancouver. Sometimes groups stop here instead of passing over us (although that happens more often than not).
On 15 December, Natalie MacMaster, who hails from Cape Breton, will be appearing in the same venue as April Verch. Natalie is another fiddle virtuoso and always puts on a spectacular show.
Since I have been a bit tired, I’ve spent a chunk of time knitting. I was curious to see how the new wool would look in a scarf. This is my progress to date.
I am liking the colours and want to keep on knitting to see when and how the colours repeat.
Happy week everyone!
