HUNTER RIVER – World-renowned P.E.I. fiddler, Richard Wood, will perform at Harmony House Theatre on Friday, May 10, at 8 p.m. Joining him on stage will be Gordon Belsher on guitar and Brad Fremlin on piano.
For more than two decades, Wood has impressed audiences all across Canada, as well as in the U.S., Europe, and Japan. Highlights include TV guest appearances with Shania Twain on “David Letterman” and “Good Morning America,” Carnegie Hall with Irish legends The Chieftains, a featured performer on CBC’s Canada Day on Parliament Hill, “Rita MacNeil and Friends,” and with Jean Butler of Riverdance on “Celtic Electric.”
Wood has played for Canada’s prime minister and Governor General, the Queen of England (in Toronto), and for the Emperor of Japan in Tokyo. In the late 1990s he toured Europe headlining concert halls and folk festivals. He’s since played at the Lincoln Centre in New York City, Epcot at Disney World, and was a featured performer in the touring fiddle spectacle “Bowfire.” He is proud to have entertained Canada’s Armed Forces in Bosnia and twice in Afghanistan.
