Album: Fergus Fiddler
Scott Woods has been playing the violin since age four. He is a two time winner of the Canadian Open Fiddle Contest in Shelburne and two time Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Champion. In 1999 he was named the Canadian Fiddle Entertainer of the Year.
The album Fergus Fiddler was originally released on cassette tape in 1986. It featured ten selections by the then fifteen-year-old Scott Woods. It included four of his own compositions and some family favourites passed down from six generations of fiddlers in his family. It was produced by Bobby Brown (of Cape Breton Symphony fame) who also played accordion. It also included Scott's mom Carolyn on piano and his sister Kendra playing the harmony fiddle parts. Long-time friends and members of the Merv Woods Band - Ivan Felker and Karl Watson, who still perform with the group, played on the recording.
The original ten tracks (#1-5 and #9-13) have been digitally remastered here, along with six more selections from the new McLeod Music Studios in Fergus. Many requests for tunes played in The Scott Woods Show, such as Czardas, Red Wing and Danny Boy are included here, along with the tune that helped Scott capture the 1999 Canadian Grand Master's Fiddling Championship - Scott's original arrangement of Limerock.
We hope you enjoy this much anticipated re-release of Fergus Fiddler.
