The STEP Fiddlers

Website

The STEP Fiddlers are a group of fine young fiddle players, ranging in age from seven to 14, drawn from the students of the Suzuki Talent Education Program (STEP) in St. John’s. They are directed by Christina Smith, who founded the group in 1982 to give young Newfoundlanders an opportunity to learn their province’s traditional music. The STEP Fiddlers have been featured performers at many concerts and events in the St. John’s area, for local and international audiences, and have recently traveled to Guelph, Ontario, London, England, and Derry, Northern Ireland. Over the years the group has released two CDs: “Galing for a Storm” and “Fiddling in the Fog.”
