Jane Cory, 2018 Canadian Grand Master Fiddle Champion, and Kyle Burghout (kyleburghout.com), North American Irish Fiddle Champion, have been performing for over a decade, and have played to audiences across Canada, the USA, and Europe.
Growing up in areas with rich fiddling traditions—Cory in Manitoba and Burghout in the Ottawa Valley—Jane and Kyle’s shows feature a blend of the traditional tunes they were raised on as well as contemporary tunes composed by fiddlers from across Canada and beyond, including many compositions of their own. Cory and Burghout also draw on their backgrounds in classical music to create lush harmonies and exciting arrangements, ranging from lyrical waltzes and airs to toe-tapping jigs and reels.
Jane Cory and Kyle Burghout perform with Cape Breton pianist Tyson Chen (tysonchen.com) and with 5x Canadian Open Step Dance Champion and guitarist Kyle Waymouth (kylewaymouth.com/), who wowed the audience at the 2018 AlgomaTrad Staff Concert with his amazing dancing and guitar-playing.
