Event Details

Alaria’s Fiddle is a tale about a young girl who lives with her mother in an isolated island lighthouse on Canada’s west coast. With little to do but play her fiddle over the marine radio to the passing fishing fleet, Alaria makes a plea to the wide world for music to play by sending a thousand requests for music in bottles that she casts into the ocean. As if by magic, her pleas are answered. In time, she receives gifts of music from across the globe: from India, Sweden, the Ukraine, Quebec, Brazil, and beyond.

The Fiddlers are an ensemble of more than 80 musicians, ranging in age of 6 to more than 60, and has been performing fiddle tunes for the past 20 years under the musical direction of Leslie-Jean MacMillan.
