Multiple winner at the Canadian Open and Canadian Grand Masters Fiddle Championships, Scott Woods is keeping the tradition of old-time fiddling alive as he brings his newest show called Fiddling in the key of…Eh? to Salmon Arm on Friday, May 29.

Woods was musical director and played the part of Don Messer for seven years with Memories of Don Messer’s Jubilee that toured extensively throughout Canada.  He was also the headline act that launched the Don Messer Centennial Celebrations in Harvey, NB in 2009.

Woods and his band perform up to 150 concerts every year, most of which are fundraisers supporting churches, charities and other community service groups.

The Scott Woods Band has its roots in The Merv Woods Orchestra, originally started by Scott’s father Merv in 1950.

“My dad always taught us to give back whenever we could,” Scott recalls.  “We hope to continue doing this for many years to come.”

Woods’ latest production, Fiddling in the key of…Eh? explores some of the great Canadian fiddling styles from Cape Breton and Scottish tunes to Acadian and Irish influences to French Canadian, Métis and Eastern European.

Joining him on stage is Cape Breton tenor Tommy Leadbeater, guitar virtuoso and East Coast Music award- inner, Bruce Timmins, and multiple Canadian Open Step Dance Champion, Kyle Waymouth.

Fiddling in the key of…Eh? takes place at 7 p.m. at the Seniors’ Fifth Avenue Activity Centre, 170 Fifth Ave. SE. Advance tickets are available at Acorn Music or by calling toll free, 1-855-726-8896.
