North Shore Celtic Ensemble

The North Shore Celtic Ensemble has been delighting and inspiring audiences locally, nationally and internationally since 1999. Four times invited to the Aberdeen International Youth Festival, they have toured in Scotland, Québec, the Maritimes and across BC, and played for myriad festivals and concert series’ throughout the Lower Mainland. With their highly engaging stage presence this outstanding group of young fiddlers packs a huge punch at the same time as packing concert halls and theatres for the NSCE’s own concert series as well as for those in Kelowna and Penticton, for the Chilliwack Arts and Cultural Centre and for the ACT Presents Performance Series in Maple Ridge. Well known for their collaborative excellence this ensemble often teams up with other artists to wonderful effect and did most recently with the Lions Gate Sinfonia Orchestra in another stunning bending of traditional lines. Hailing from North Vancouver, BC, they are a force unto themselves – ‘a breathtaking display of joy with fiddles’!
