FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Canada's First National Fiddling Day / Première journée nationale du violon traditionnel
Recognizing the significance of fiddle music in the evolution
of Canadian culture, the Parliament of Canada has
passed into law that the third Saturday in May
each year will be known as ‘National Fiddling Day’.
May 16 2015 will be Canada's First National Fiddling Day. Coinciding with World Fiddle Day, it is a day where fiddle lovers across Canada can pay special tribute to the joy of fiddling by playing by sharing their favorite tunes.
The Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Association (CGMFA) is encouraging all fiddle players across Canada to celebrate Canada's first National Fiddling Day and challenges all Canadians who play the fiddle (aka violin!) to play the fiddle on May 16. Join with your friends and play some great Canadian fiddle tunes.
