|Scott Woods brings fiddle variety show to Holyoke|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Upbeat and uplifting. These two words could well describe the Scott Woods Show coming to Holyoke Friday, Feb. 17 at 7:30 p.m. The outstanding fiddle show is brought to town as part of the concert season being presented by Phillips County Arts Council and will be held in the HHS auditorium.
This fast-paced, two-hour concert skillfully combines old-time fiddling with country gospel songs, perennial favorites and a generous helping of humor.
The audience will be treated to one of Canada’s best talents—the man with the flying fingers and the magic bow-fiddling sensation, Scott Woods.
Woods has performed to enthusiastic crowds throughout Canada, the United States and also in Holland.
This young man has captured all the major Canadian fiddling titles, including Canadian Open Fiddle Champion, Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Champion and Canadian Fiddle Entertainer of the year.
There are lots of things to watch for when Woods takes the stage. His keen sense of timing and his sharp wit will keep people on their toes. And speaking of toes, just try to keep them still as he plays those old-time tunes.
Woods is backed up by his own four-piece show band, which will include another fiddler, guitar/banjo, bass and drums—one of whom is also a champion step dancer.
Together they stir up a storm of good music to lift people’s hearts and feed their souls.
