The Scott Woods band will be returning to the William Glesby Centre on May 12 with a two hour variety show honouring fiddle legends.
Woods, a Canadian fiddle champion, will honour the likes of Don Messer, Al Cherny, King Ganam, Graham Townsend, Ward Allen and many others.
"Every year when we come across the country we have a brand new show, so this year's show is called Fiddle Legends. Basically what we're doing is honouring and paying tribute to the icons if you will of Canadian fiddling - those who went before and kind of in whose footsteps we're following," said Woods. "We're honouring them by playing tunes they might have composed or might have played or recorded."
The show will also seek to amaze and impress the audience with 17-year-old step dancing champ Kyle Weymouth showing off his moves, and Woods doing his famous tricks.
"The one thing that people often ask that have seen us before, they ask if I'm going to be doing the tricks. The answer is yes, I still do the tricks: I play behind my back and under my leg, I do my front running flip, play with a broom or a coat hanging instead of the bow. This year I'm going to be walking on a barrel as well," said Woods.
