This concert is jointly presented by Acoustic Artisans and the Acadia School of Traditional Music and Arts (www.acadiatradschool.com).

Fiery Prince Edward Island fiddler Richard Wood (http://rwood.ca) has lit up a lot of stages from Carnegie Hall with the Chieftains, to David Letterman with Shania Twain; from major festivals to small theatres to intimate house concerts; from North America to Europe, Japan and Australia.

Over the years, Richard has graced the stage for Royalty – the Queen of England, the Emperor of Japan, and Canada’s Governors General. Most recently, he performed for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during their Canadian visit to his home Province. He has entertained Canadian troops in Bosnia and Afghanistan, and MacLean’s Magazine named him one of the Top 100 Canadians to watch in the 21’st century.

As accompanist and featured vocalist with Richard Wood, Gordon Belsher (www.guernseycove.ca) has toured extensively across Canada, the U.S., the U.K., Europe, Australia, and performed as part of the cultural delegation for Team Canada in Tokyo, Japan in 1999. He received the prestigious “Lifetime Achievement Award” at the 2014 MUSIC PEI Awards.

Over the last few years, Richard and Gordon have been performing and touring as a duo. Enthusiastic audiences have been taken on a roller coaster ride of exhilarating – even exhausting – jigs and reels, Strathspeys and hornpipes, and beautiful airs, many composed by Richard himself. This is complimented by Gordon’s engaging songs, some humorous and some poignant, warming things up for the next fiddle blaze.

“Richard Wood’s connection with his audience is a wonder to behold. His skill and delivery left us breathless. Gordon Belsher’s support and vocals added the perfect blend to make the show complete in every way. This show has absolutely everything!” – Phill McIntyre, Skye Theatre, South Carthage, Maine

“If ever there was a demonstration as to the high quality of Canadian musicianship then these two lay down the standard for others to follow.” – Eden Court, Inverness, Scotland.

“Truly Richard Wood and Gordon Belsher brought the house down at St. Kieran’s Arts Centre yesterday! From opening explosion to standing ovation, they endeared themselves into our hearts forever!” – Joan Chamberlain, St. Kieran’s Executive Director, Berlin New Hampshire

“…Jaysus!!…get a bucket of water!…the man’s on fire!” – Youtube comment

“…all the balls and fire of a rock god, but all the talent and skill of a master musician”

– Time Out, London

“…perfect precision, playfulness and power” – Charlottetown Guardian
