No one embodies the spirit of Canadian music as does Anne Lederman-- fiddler extraordinaire, singer of songs old and new, composer, improvisor and multi-instrumentalist, she revitalizes old traditions, embraces new ones, and creates music that brings it all together. She has been called:
"a national treasure" (Gary Cristall)
"one of the most talented musicians in the country" (Derek Andrews)
"an amazing artist" (Richard Flohill)
She "brings to life the traditions of our country's people and she does it all well" (Cristall)
" . . . a country of such diversity couldn't have a better ambassador" (Singout, August '94)
Anne performs solo, as Fiddlesong
with Tom Leighton (piano/accordion) and/or Ian Bell (guitar/button accordion/harmonica) and various musicians on percussion and bass. She is also a member of Njacko Backo’s Kalimba Kalimba! and has a new fiddle-based trio with James Stephens and Emilyn Stam, called Eh?!
