Twin Fiddles is a union of two well-known, award-winning and accomplished Canadian fiddlers, Saskatchewan’s JJ Guy and Saskatchewan-born, Nova Scotian Gordon Stobbe. They work together throughout the Canadian West and North teaching workshops, mentoring youth, performing and composing.
Their distinctive original tunes are written in the twin fiddle style with lead and harmony lines in a wonderful musical collaboration and reflects their shared love for traditional fiddle music, the unique places they have been and the people they have met. In performance, the Twin Fiddle show includes the rich stories of their shared experiences and includes much humor and audience participation. The album “Twin Fiddles”, which garnered a Western Canadian Music Award Nomination, represents a quilt work of original tunes written by Guy and Stobbe which capture their Canadian home land and itʼs many hidden corners of wonder! This successful tune writing style continues on the much anticipated and recently released “Twin Fiddles 3”.
