The Coast String Fiddlers is a youth performing group that plays an international mix of traditional fiddle music, including Scottish, Appalachian, Canadian, and Finnish as well as modern compositions – some of which defy categorization!
The groups are under the musical direction of Holly Beckmyer and Anneka Bonser.
The Coast String Fiddlers group rehearses on Friday evenings in Gibsons. The Intermediate/Advanced group is suited for musicians who have been studying fiddle or cello for at least 3 years, and play at an intermediate – advanced level. Musicians should be comfortable learning by ear and playing tunes up to speed. The Novice group is for musicians with at least one year of fiddle instruction.
