Richard Wood & Gordon Belsher
Cape Breton style dance and concert with PEI fiddler Richard Wood accompanied by Gordon Belsher on guitar at the authentic Downeast venuue of the Canadian-American Club.
Todd MacLean, Charlottetown Guardian on Richard Wood -
"Picture it: A graceful tune to start off a set, with beautiful zippering lines, played while caressing the fiddle to his ear, eyes closed, off in a serene realm in a dance with time, as he lures us there with him. Then a cutting strathspey to kick it into a higher gear as he whoops out loud and smiles at the crowd a total of six reels in a row, all executed with flawless precision, pounding in rhythm, intoxicating in a firing energy, which brings about numerous fits of spontaneous applause from the crowd who spring to their feet in ovation immediately at the sets end. Wood simply dropped every single jaw in the house certainly making us all proclaim he is back, and he is better than ever."
Based in Prince Edward Island on Canada's east coast, Gordon Belsher has been entertaining audiences in Canada and around the world for more than 40 years performing at concerts, ceilidhs, conventions, and pubs.
