The Fiddle & Frostbite tradition continues – no Christmas music – guaranteed!

The tradition of the County’s favourite seasonal concert, Fiddle & Frostbite, which was produced for more than 10 years by Janet Kellough and her best friend, fiddler extraordinaire, the late Zeke Mazurek, will continue in a different format this year.
Renamed, “Songs for a Winter’s Night” the concert will be held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church Monday, Dec. 27 at 8 p.m. and features Jeanette Arsenault, Mark McGreevy, Fraser Hardman and Judy Fraser, and special guests, Picton’s young Rising Stars. Singer songwriter Jeanette Arsenault is co-producing the concert.
“This has always been such a sweet show,” said Arsenault.  “There are many people who have attended every year and I know they will be thrilled with what we have planned for this year’s performance.  We are dedicating the show to the memory of our dear friend, Zeke.”

“Songs for a Winter’s Night is a protégé show” said co-producer, Judy Fraser.  “We’ve paired performers with young musicians who have been involved with the Rising Star competitions and the result has been such a wonderful surprise.”

Jeanette will be joined by her daughter, 16-year-old Rising Star 2010 winner, Katie Shannon.   Young Country music charmer Cole Foster-Lynd will perform with Celtic singer, Mark McGreevy.  Fraser Hardman, who sings, plays bass, piano and mandolin, is joined by talented Rising Star finalist, pianist and singer Gavin Massey.  People’s Choice award winner, 11-year-old Abbie Chapman, will be teaming up with Judy Fraser to pay homage to their mutual musical favourite, Frank Sinatra.

“Working with Jeanette, Fraser and Mark is such a treat – they are all so talented and the variety of styles is really fun.” Judy said, “And the kids are just unbelievably talented.  There’s such a range of music, from Celtic to Country and Beatles to Jazz, and the voices have all come together for some truly amazing sounds and a casual and fun atmosphere.”

Songs for a Winter’s Night will be held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on King Street in Picton.  Tickets are $20 and are available at the CountyTix outlet at Books & Co. or by calling Judy at 613 471-0038.
