Since 2013, acoustic trio Fiddlehead Soup has been delighting audiences, not only with their unique sound of three voices intertwined with a growing array of instruments, but also with their wide-ranging and unique collection of material.
Featuring mother-and-daughter fiddlers Glenna Hunter and Ursa Meyer (who between them also play viola, ‘cello and keyboard) and veteran folkie Doug Hendry on 12-string guitar and cittern, the trio draws material from European folk traditions and beyond. Combining those sounds (they currently sing in 9 languages) with their own finely crafted and earthy chamber-folk style, Fiddlehead Soup weaves a magic carpet ride of music that is both toe-tapping and thought provoking. A favourite of festivals and venues throughout the country, Fiddlehead Soup is delighted to be back at Music in the Pines for Canada’s 150th anniversary.
