Métis Fiddler Quartet
This group of Métis siblings born in Winnipeg, Manitoba have nurtured a passion for music from an early age.
Building on their foundations in classical music studies, they have mentored with Aboriginal elders from across
Canada to develop their repertoire of Indigenous Canadian fiddle music. The group’s debut album North West
Voyage Nord Ouest won best traditional album at the 2012 Canadian Folk Music Awards.
The group has performed their music for audiences across Canada and internationally; from intimate settings in
libraries, museums and schools, to festivals and events such as: the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, the National
Aboriginal Achievement Awards, the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian Gala, the Mariposa
Folk Festival, and the Alianait festival in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Recent performances by the group include: the 2015
Parapan Am games opening ceremony, and La Grande Gigue, a collaboration with the Caprice Baroque Ensemble
for the 2016 Montreal Baroque Festival.
