“Fiddler’s Fancy was founded in 1997 to showcase the talents of Celtic musicians and dancers in venues varying from fairs, festivals and weddings to hotel ballrooms and living rooms. These experienced performers have performed at venues ranging from pubs, restaurants and major festivals, to wedding celebrations for Jerry Garcia and the Alioto family. Fiddler’s Fancy can provide musicians and dancers for parties, weddings or wakes.
Fiddler’s Fancy ranges soloists, duos, trios, quartets, quintets, a Celtic Rock Band and a full fledged Irish step-dance show!
Our repertoire now includes music from all over Europe and much of the Americas, including Celtic, American, English, French, Italian, Scandinavian, Mexican, Klezmer, Eastern European, Classical, Renaissance, Medieval and Middle Eastern.
Various instrumentations are possible, combining violin, harp, flute, recorder, guitar, mandola, mandocello, bass, pennywhistle and bodhran and other percussion. Historical themes in both music and costuming are also possible, especially Renaissance and Victorian. And there’s always modern basic black.
