Canadian Fiddle Champion Scott Woods along with his multi-talented band will be making a stop in Humboldt for an “Old Fashioned Hoedown”.
“We have a brand new show called ‘Old Fashioned Hoedown’ and it celebrates the old-time folk music, traditional country, some gospel music, and of course lots of step dancing and humour,” says Scott Woods.
He will be bringing his whole band which consists of his sister, Kendra Woods Norris, who is also a champion fiddler, 18-year-old Leo “Spaghetti Legs” Stock, and Germain Leduc.
“After being locked down for a couple of years with COVID, it was important to get out and do the thing that we all love to do no matter what that may be. For us, that’s playing music. For lots of people that was gathering to go to dances, or church, or go to the Legion and socialize with your friends. This whole show is just a upbeat, happy, fun show to try and celebrate those things that we took for granted and then all of a sudden were taken away cause we were locked down.”
His show in Humboldt will take place at the Humboldt Royal Canadian on Sunday, May 14 at 2:00 pm.
“It’s the perfect gift for a mom that has everything. Bring her to the show and enjoy the afternoon, and then you can take her out to supper after.”
Tickets are $45 each and may be purchased at the Legion Club Room, at Kemway Lanes, or online by clicking here.
“You don’t have to be a fiddle fan, you don’t have to be a country music fan, we try to play a little bit of everything. We’ve got some Gospel, stuff like that. Leo’s dancing is worth the price of admission just to see him move. His feet are absolutely amazing, he just won the Canadian Open Step Dancing Champion in the fall. It’s just a fun show to come and see and take two hours to distract your mind from all of life's worries.”
