  • OTTAWA -- Entertainers will again be part of the Ottawa Valley Farm Show and this year fiddles are stealing the show, with all three musical acts featuring fiddlers, very appropriate for visitors from up and down the Valley.

    The music begins in the early afternoon of Tues., March 14 (1 p.m. to 3 p.m.) with The Vintage Fiddlers. Performing old time fiddling music will be lead fiddler Bruce Wilson, with Mary Montgomery and Lynda O'Grady on fiddle, and Irene McClusky on piano. Accompanying the group will be Eugene Gorbichuk on vocals and rhythm guitar and Roger Fowler on accordion.

    On Thurs., March 16, The Tiger Island Trio plays from 10 a.m. to noon playing tunes from the likes of Hank Williams and Bobby Helms. Accompanying The Tiger Island Trio as a special guest will be 10-year-old Kelsey Warren, a step dancer and fiddler who attends fiddle and step dancing competitions throughout Ontario. Warren won the championship for nine and under for two consecutive years at the Pembroke Fiddle and Step Dance Competition.

    Also on Thursday, in the afternoon from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Barrhaven Fiddlehead will play traditional old time music, with a repertoire of tunes from throughout Canada and including jigs, reels, waltzes, two-steps, swings, and foxtrots. Originating in 2000, this group consists of fiddlers, pianist, guitar players, singers and a step dancer. The group's performance donations provide financial support to the Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Association to help promote Old Time Fiddling Music.

    So get ready to tap your toes to jigs and reels at the OVFS.
