Acoustic musical group Fiddlehead Soup brings their eclectic musical style to Merrickville United Arts Centre on Saturday, November 3. This well-known folk ensemble features mother-and-daughter fiddlers Glenna Hunter and Ursa Meyer (who also play piano, viola and ‘cello), Doug Hendry on 12-string guitar and cittern and Jason Sonier on percussion.
The evening promises music from the Celtic regions, Scandinavia and beyond, with even an Australian folk song thrown in. Singing songs in many languages, Fiddlehead Soup also performs its own artfully crafted material. Haunting harmonies combine with toe-tapping rhythms and thought-provoking lyrics.
Joining the band on stage will be a superb array of local musicians, including Jim Hunter on keyboard, Gary Roberts on drums, Elizabeth McNally on vocals, Jay Williams on stand-up bass, and Shawn Yakimovich on fiddle.
Tickets for the show are available at www.merrickvilleuac.com, and cost $15 in advance and $20 at the door. The Merrickville United Arts Centre is located at 100 St Lawrence Street in Merrickville. Doors open at 7 pm. And bring your dancing shoes because you never know…
