North American Fiddlers' Hall of Fame member Patti Kusturok's old time fiddle style is characterized by a pulsating, rhythmical lilt that is guaranteed to get you on the dance floor.
Often referred to as one the smoothest fiddle players in North America, Patti is known for her effortless delivery of some of the best traditional Canadian fiddle music of all time.
A recording artist, Patti is in high demand for performances, teaching, recording, and judging fiddle contests across the continent.
At the age of four, Patti began to learn playing the fiddle, and has a resume that reads like that of an Olympic champion. A few to her credit includes the Canadian Junior Champion (1985), 3-time Champion at the famous Pembroke, ON competition, 6 time Manitoba Champion, 3 time Grand North American Champion, and in 1994, 1995 and again in 1996, Patti won the prestigious Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Championship in Ottawa, ON. Patti was the first woman in the history of Canada to ever win and was the very first person from Western Canada to attain the crown.
Patti is known across the country in the fiddle music world and with her humble demeanour and personable stage presence allows the audience to soak in the music and connect with her in a special way. Patti has a razor sharp wit and when she starts playing her fiddle the musical spirits instantly come alive in whatever room she’s playing!!
After being one of the most sought after old time dance players in her home province of Manitoba, Patti has taken that amazing feel and drive, mixed it up with a little humour, and put together a fun and entertaining show that will have you laughing and stomping your feet, with maybe even a tear or two as you allow yourself to remember the good old days of having a kitchen party until the wee hours.
The Toronto Fiddle Collective (TFC) is a community gathering run by local fiddler and teacher Celina Marie DiCecca. She started the monthly gathering in 2014 as a means for her students to play tunes together as well as learn from and see intimate concerts by other professional fiddlers from all over the world. Now 6 years later, fiddlers and folkies from all over southern Ontario join in on the fun.
Fiddlers and folk musicians of all ages and levels come together on the 3rd Wednesday of every month for various fiddle focused events. TFC hosts a new special guest professional musician to run/lead workshops, kitchen parties, jam sessions, concerts, dances and more. To keep up to date with TFC, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be added to the monthly e-news email list.
Tickets are always sold at the door or, for special events, in advance email email@example.com
