With Fiddlefire!, Chris McKhool and his musical friends from Sultans of String get kids and families clapping, dancing and singing songs. Kids and their parents scat-sing, become a rhythm section and join McKhool on stage to play rare percussion instruments from around the globe! Kids will be introduced to several musical styles, including rumba flamenca, gypsy-jazz, blues, classical, funk, world beat, and east coast fiddling.
Hailed as a “Children’s musical star” (National Post), Chris McKhool is one of Canada’s greatest musicians for young audiences. McKhool has reached over 1 million children live in concert, winning 3 USA Parents’ Choice Awards, 3 Canadian Folk Music Awards and 3 JUNO Award nominations. He also won Best Children’s Entertainer at the Festivals & Events Ontario Awards, a Green Toronto Award of Excellence, an Environment Canada Action Award and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for his commitment to young audiences, community betterment, and multiculturalism. A champion of environmental issues, Chris also created the world’s largest bicycle bell orchestra at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto with over 800 bell ringers!
This matinee performance is a musical celebration the entire family will enjoy!
