In the spring of 1999, an ad was placed in a local Hamilton newspaper, looking for local musicians. John and Luella, founders of Grand River Dinner Cruises, were putting together a new music show. The music show had been a Dinner Cruises tradition for years, and when the previous star retired, John suggested getting some fiddle players for the new show. So in May 1999, after a short period of auditions, the ‘Millennium Four’ took the stage at ‘Big Creek Boat Farm’ (as it was then known). This original group soon became The Blazing Fiddles, consisting of three violins and a piano. This form remained the standard until 2008, when a stand-up bass (Chris Kettlewell) was added. Eventually the group evolved to include Jeff Taylor, Brielle Goheen, Adam Poot, and Chris Kettlewell as THE BLAZING FIDDLES!! Over the last ten years, The Blazing Fiddles have performed for hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world! Last year they played at the Gravenhurst Opera House to an audience that insisted we bring them back soon. Don’t miss this concert!
