Join Us for Childsplay: Fiddlers, Fiddles and Fiddlemaker

Nov 30

Enjoy the ultimate fiddle celebration when musicians from Boston Symphony violinists to all-Ireland and national Scottish fiddle champions come together here for one fabulous night of music!

Enjoy the ultimate fiddle celebration at 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30 at Landmark College when musicians from Boston Symphony violinists to all-Ireland and national Scottish fiddle champions come together for one fabulous night of music!

Childsplay is the ultimate fiddle choir, a joyful familial fiddle celebration that features some of the best fiddlers in the nation, from Boston Symphony violinists to all-Ireland and national Scottish fiddle champions.  What is unique about Childsplay is that all the violinists and fiddlers perform on instruments made for them by violinmaker Bob Childs. So the special sound of Childsplay lies not only in the skill of the musicians but also in the warm familial timbre of the instruments they play — a quality similar to the vocal blending of singers from the same family. Blending voice and violin, this year's tour will introduce our audiences to the wonderful singing of young rising star Lissa Schneckenburger from Brattleboro Vermont, whose pure voice is known for its sweet emotive clarity.  This is a show not to be missed!

The event is being held in the Greenhoe Theater in the Fine Arts Building on the Landmark College Campus. Tickets for the Nov. 30 event are available at childsplay.org.
