Brussels Fiddle fest celebrates traditional
On Sunday, July 23,
the Brussels Lions Club will be hosting its fourth annual fiddle jamboree at
the Brussels, Morris and Grey Community Centre.
Building upon the
success of the first jamboree, held in 2014, the Lions continue to attract
attention for this unique musical event, which has now been featured in a
documentary about the musical roots of Huron County.
“The Lions consider
[the fiddle jamboree] to be a real opportunity to promote fiddle music in our
area and encourage the involvement of youth,” the event’s website states.
Rather than bringing
in musicians to perform for the community, the event shines a light on
musicians within the community, inviting local fiddle players to perform on
stage backed by a band of professional musicians.
Founder Jim Lee says
he hopes the event will capture the heritage feeling of listening to old-time
fiddle music on the radio in a Huron County kitchen.
