Michael Audette and Fiddle Hall of Fame Ceremony
The concert is $10 USD or free to Old Time Fiddle Workshop participants.
Michael Audette, 23, got his first fiddle at the age of 4 years old and has since gone on to develop his skills and become one of Manitoba’s most popular young ”Métis fiddlers.”
Michael is a 3 time Manitoba fiddle champion and has performed at various events across Canada in an effort to promote old time fiddle music. The love of the fiddle was passed down to him from his grandfather Alex Carriere. Michael has added his passion for Country music to his fiddling which has taken his talents as far as Shanghai China. Michael can be found backing up some of Manitoba’s finest Country artist’s such as Kendra Kay, Nicole Rayy, David Pestrak, Ray Martin, Sean Taylor, Ashley Robertson and many more.
