Scott Woods fiddling into town

By on May 7, 2015

Renowned Canadian fiddler Scott Woods is bringing his high-energy show Fiddling in the Key of … Eh? to the Merritt Civic Centre at the end of the month.

True to its name, the concert will centre on fiddle tunes from across Canada, featuring Scottish, Acadian, French-Canadian, Irish, Métis and Eastern European influences.

The Ontario-based multi-instrumentalist is known for his trick fiddling and the novelties he’s perfected in his nearly three decades of touring Canada. The sixth-generation fiddler is known as the Flippin’ Fiddler for his ability to somersault as he plays.

Woods tours the country every year to raise money for churches, charities and community service organizations, and this month’s concert will benefit the local United Church.

Woods last performed his Swingin’ Fiddles variety show in Merritt in 2013.

The show starts at 7 p.m. on May 31. Tickets are available at Black’s Pharmacy and the Baillie House.
