Chris McKhool's Fiddlefire

Breathe fire into your jazz festival! Violin sensation Chris McKhool gets children and families dancing, clapping, laughing and singing songs. Kids and their parents scat-sing, become a rhythm section and join Chris on stage to play rare percussion instruments from around the world! Chris plays several musical styles (jazz, blues, classical, Rumba flamenca, funk, world beat, East Coast fiddling and more) along with Kevin Laliberté (guitar), Drew Birston (bass) and Lorie Wolf (drums).

Chris McKhool is hailed as a “Children’s musical star” (National Post) and “Canada’s greatest troubadour for young people.” (Mississauga Living Arts Centre) Chris has been delighting audiences with infectious songs and exotic world instruments for over ten years, reaching almost 1 million children. All of Chris’ shows feature original songs from his appearances on Mr. Dressup, YTV’s Treehouse, TVOntario’s Crawlspace and live CBC Television and Radio.

“I was impressed by his musical virtuosity and personal appeal…His songs succeed!”
-Ernie Coombs, (Mr. Dressup)
