Fiddlin' Frenzy / Bio

Fiddlin’ Frenzy have been chosen to perform at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics at 15 different events! They have also just released their second CD with Canadian fiddle master Calvin Vollrath new for 2010, which contains 9 of the 12 tunes composed by Kai and Lia.
Since 2005, they had some great shows at many different festivals repeatedly and successfully put on their own concert through Festival of Creative and Artistic. They also performed for Rick Hansen's Wheels in Motion, and BC Children’s Hospital Miracle weekend. Kai and Lia have been performing as the Fiddlin’ Frenzy (aka Old Time Fiddle Kids) playing from Celtic, traditional, bluegrass, roots to classical music at numerous festivals and gatherings repeatedly as spotlight performers for a few years now and are always a hit. Both Kai and Lia have won first in various categories at BC Provincial and Grand North America Fiddle competitions for many years. In 2006, they recorded their first CD, "The Fox and The Fiddle" at the age 7 and 9. They had been featured on CBC radio and many local papers and have been nominated for the Abbotsford Arty Award. They are also a “Face of Abbotsford” who represents Abbotsford’s art and culture. Both started learning classical music at age 4 but soon discovered the fiddle. These two young fiddlers are classical violin prodigies, they also do clogging dance, play piano and Lia is an accomplished cellist too. They both have composed their own music since they were seven. Fiddle master Calvin Vollrath said they are amazing. Some of the adjudicators have also praised them as the “musical kids." When they competed at Prince George in the adult Twin Fiddle category and came in first, they received a standing ovation for their astonishing harmonic performance. They were also chosen out of 400 members from the Vancouver Youth Symphony to perform at a Celtic event and boy did the wow the crowds!
