Coastline Youth String Ensemble @Charslanding
Sun, Apr 15th, 2:30-4:30pm, Coastline Youth String Ensemble - Vancouver Island CD Release Tour - Celtic/Folk/Fiddle
Coastline is a string ensemble comprised of BC's top young musicians ranging from ages 14-21, coached and mentored by internationally acclaimed fiddler, Ivonne Hernandez.
This award-winning band has already been making a name for themselves since their inception in January 2013.
With fiddles, cellos, guitars and piano, the group of talented teens play a diverse and exciting repertoire.
With intricate arrangements of traditional, original, and contemporary fiddle tunes from around the world, Coastline is pushing boundaries and always having a great time whenever they play.
Individually, the members of Coastline have won many awards and competitions, and as a group, their talents blend to form a strong, united sound that is a force to be reckoned with.
After being together for only a few months, they won the Large Fiddle Ensemble award at the Greater Victoria Performing Arts Festival.
They have since gone on to perform at many different festivals and venues across Western Canada and internationally, including the Aberdeen International Youth Festival, Victoria International Highland Games & Celtic Festival, Victoria's Tartan Day, and Car Free Day.
Coastline was the featured performer at the Victoria Folk Club, Sidney Celtic Vespers and with both the Gettin Higher Choir and SingYourJoy Youth Chorus at 2 sold out performances with each choir.
Coastline has also opened for such notable acts as the award winning band The Fretless, Scottish fiddle/cello phenom duo Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas, Quebec phenoms De Temps Antan, and American celtic fiddler Katie McNally Trio, among others.
With a keen desire to perform, share their music and travel, Coastline has had a busy couple of years.
They released their debut self titled album to rave reviews and 2 Canadian Folk Music Award nominations, and represented Canada at the Aberdeen International Youth Festival in Scotland in July 2015.
This year has been an exciting and busy one for this team of young musicians, with feature performances with SingYourJoy Youth Choirs, a tour to Alberta and an exchange with the Calgary Fiddlers as well as promoting their brand new highly anticipated 2nd album 'The High Drive'!
Check out these great young musicians and prepare to tap your toes and clap your hands to our Coastline!
