TROY — The Troy-Hayner Cultural Center’s Downtown Troy Summer Music Series will continue with Everything Fitz at 7:30 p.m. July 8 on Prouty Plaza in downtown Troy.
Everything Fitz is a family band featuring the high-energy fiddling and percussive step dancing of four of Canada’s finest young musicians. With roots in the Canadian old-time fiddle tradition and Ottawa Valley step dancing, their unique stage show combines a variety of musical styles — everything from traditional jigs and reels, bluegrass, jazz and swing standards, Celtic, gospel as well as novelty numbers and choreographed dance routines.
Julie, 24, Kerry, 23, and Tom, 20, are all champion fiddlers and provide intricate 3-part fiddle harmonies as well as solo improvisations on fiddle, mandolin and guitar. Additional instrumentation includes Pat, 25, on percussion along with parents Pam and Paddy providing accompaniment on piano and bass guitar. An audience favorite is their award-winning group step dancing.
These spirited young performers are noted for their polished performances and provide wholesome, captivating entertainment for a diverse audience. Performing in theatres, on festival stages, at fairs and exhibitions as well as corporate and fund-raising events and outreach programs in schools, Everything Fitz has received glowing reviews from promoters, organizers and fans across Canada and the United States.
