Wednesday, May 9 will mark the return of the famous Scott Woods band to the area.
Tickets for this presentation of “Fiddling Up a Storm” may be purchased at the Emo Legion (123 Jessie St.) or by calling 482-2250.
You also can purchase by phone with a Visa or MasterCard by calling toll-free 1-855-726-8896.
Ticket prices are $25 for adults and $10 for children aged six-12, with kids five and under being free.
Join Scott Woods and his talented band for this uplifting live show and hear the flurry of fast fingers on a fiddle or guitar similar to a hurricane or twister–or maybe the calm before the storm.
Enjoy lots of old-time fiddle music, traditional country songs, Western Swing tunes, country Gospel favourites, fancy instrumentals, sweet harmonies, smooth vocals, sensational step dancing, family humour, inspirational stories, and, of course, some trick fiddling!
Doors will open about one hour prior to show time.
