We are very excited to be welcoming Daniel Gervais to Music Camp this year! In addition to being the first and only Albertan to win the Canadian Grand Masters Fiddle Competition, Daniel is an accomplished classical violinist who also plays swing, jazz, celtic, and more. His passion for the instrument and its music is contagious! He recently completed his Master of Music in Performance degree at the University of Alberta and chose fiddling sensation, Calvin Vollrath as the subject of his Master’s thesis. Calvin has helped to preserve and promote traditional Canadian fiddling and inspire generations of younger, up-and-coming fiddlers through his concerts, camps, over 50 recordings, and more than 450 compositions. We were extremely honoured to have Calvin join us as an instructor at Music Camp last year.
As both a musical offering and teaser before Camp in July, we recommend that you visit Daniel’s website to hear him play the Alabama Jubilee. His is a very sweet and savory interpretation that will get your musical juices going! We can’t wait for him to come to Camp….it’s only 9 weeks away!
