It has become a tradition for the Friends of Fiddler's Green to open each season at the Cuckoo's Nest. This season is very special as it marks the beginning of our 25th year presenting concerts at Chaucer's Pub next to the Marienbad Restaurant in downtown London. We are very greatful to Jerry Pribil and his wonderful staff for looking after us so well.
The Toronto-based "Friends" boast six versatile musicians, four fine singers, three songwriters, a brilliant joke teller, the occasional fiery dragon, one Order of Canada, one Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal and one of the longest track records in Canadian Folk Music. This totally uncategorizable collection has been together, with a few personnel changes, since their inauguration at Toronto's Fiddler's Green coffeehouse in 1971. Nobody, not even the Friends themselves, can predict what might happen during one of their concerts, but it always includes humour, powerful vocal harmony, great musicianship, social commentary and an irresistible urge to dance.
The Friends were recipients of the 2003 Estelle Klein Award, given by the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals for service to folk music in Ontario.
