Shane Cook and the Woodchippers
saturday april 23rd
Shane Cook & The Woodchippers rely on their deep foundation in the traditional music, song and dance of Ontario for the core of their sound, yet also draw on styles as broad as folk, Celtic, roots, country, contemporary and jazz. Their superbly crafted compositions and arrangements are a modern, exhilarating approach to fiddle tunes, song and dance.
A Canadian and U.S. National fiddle champion, Shane Cook is a multi-instrumentalist who has distinguished himself as a master of the Canadian old-time fiddle tradition. Joining Shane as a four-member group of multi-instrumentalists, singers and step dancers, The Woodchippers are: Emily Flack (Leahy) on piano, vocals and dance, Joe Phillips (The Art of Time Ensemble) on double bass and guitar, and Kyle Waymouth (five-time national step dance champion) on guitar and dance. Be on the lookout for Shane Cook & The Woodchippers’ new debut album, Be Here for a While, released digitally on October 15, 2021. Shane Cook & The Woodchippers were thrilled to return to perform with The International Symphony Orchestra along with guest Canadian youth fiddle groups from 12 provinces and territories to unveil part of Be Here for a While in an online release concert airing Aug 27-Oct 31, 2021.
