Shane Cook & The Woodchippers @ La Tourelle
Join us for a special evening of fiddle, dance and song from our Canadian friends Shane Cook & The Woodchippers who are touring Canada and the United States in support of Shane's new release "Be Here For A While". Fiddle Champ Shane Cook will be joined by guitarist and Canadian Step Dance Champion Kyle Waymouth and the Woodchipper band for an evening of high-energy fiddle music. Ithaca's favorite contradance band, the Contradictions, featuring Tom Hodgson, Tim Ball, Dave Davies and Rick Manning, will open the show at 7:00pm with a 20 minute set of their spirited dance tunes.
Here's what Winter Village friend Claire Lynch, now a Toronto resident and occasional band member of Shane's:
"A Canadian and US National Fiddle Champion, Shane offers up death-defying, acrobatic fiddle precision, soaring through tunes from his beloved Ontario with impeccable clarity. There's magic too - that comes from what we know to be a gentle, humorous, persevering and compassionate heart. I'm ready to dance!"
