The Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society will be celebrating the Chilliwack Cultural Centre's third anniversary Oct. 5 with a musical show featuring Everything Fitz, a high-energy fiddling and step dancing family band on Oct. 5. Everything Fitz are touted as some of Canada's finest young musicians. Their repertoire, which includes traditional jigs and reels, bluegrass, jazz and swing standards, Celtic and gospel, is sure to draw the Canadian spirit out of everyone in the audience.
Their musical prowess will be complemented by complex footwork in novelty and choreographed dance routines.
Often noted for their polished act, the spirited dancers are sure to provide wholesome and captivating entertainment for everyone of all ages.
Growing up in Ontario's Ottawa Valley, which is known for being the hotbed of musical tradition, the Fitzgerald siblings' musical journey began early in life. Over the years,
they studied the fiddle and mastered the fluid style of step dance that evolved with the Irish, Scottish and French immigrants.
Julie, Kerry, and Tom Fitzpatrick are all champion fiddlers and provide intricate three-part fiddle harmonies as well as solo improvisations on fiddle, mandolin and guitar. Additional instrumentation includes Pat on percussion along with parents Pam and Paddy providing accompaniment on piano and bass guitar.
Having developed their musical talents since childhood, Everything Fitz has received glowing accolades from promoters, theatre presenters and fans across North America.
. The event will take place at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $32 for adults, $29 for seniors, and $27 for students. Call the Centre box office at 604-391-SHOW(7469) for more information.
