Fiddle & Foot Percussion

Fiddle with foot-tapping is a unique characteristic of the music of Quebec. Olivier Demers and Andre Brune, from Le Vent du Nord, are leading experts of this glorious style. They’re also great teachers and will be demonstrating how they create their amazing rhythms and play at the same time.

Please bring along your fiddle if you have one, but don’t worry if you are not a player. This workshop promises practical use to musicians and entertainment to everyone else.

Not sure what we mean? Here is a tiny snippet of them performing on stage at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival – JazzFest. Look at his feet go!
