Friday June 4, 2021: FIDDLE CLUB
Fiddle Club isn’t a club, it’s a band… of fiddle nerds. Fiddle Club just had a better ring to it!
Sarah Hamilton, Ellorie McKnight & Ryan McNally are a group of friends that came together over music, food and jokes to get through the summer of 2020 COVID lockdowns. And once things began to open up again, it felt natural to get on stage together and share their music with the community.
Sarah Hamilton is Artistic Director of the Fiddleheads and also released an amazing old time & western swing solo album.
Ellorie McKnight’s fiddle playing and angelic voice is probably one of the Yukon’s best kept secrets. She’s also a scientist.
They are joined by some guy named Ryan who seems unable to put an instrument down even though he doesn’t know how to play it.
Together they love singing in harmony to classic country songs, reminiscing about square dances and sharing their favorite old time fiddle bangers.
