North American Fiddle Champ Calvin Vollrath, who has recorded over fifty albums of published original tunes), will perform a benefit concert for the Julian Family Fiddle Camp.
In 1985, Vollrath won the Grand North American Old Time Fiddle Championship, and twenty years later was given the Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Association’s prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award.
In 2010, several Vollrath tunes were orchestrated, choreographed and performed in the extravagant opening ceremony of the Vancouver Winter Olympics, and in 2011 he was inducted into the North American Fiddlers Hall of Fame. Vollrath made his first appearances in our area as the lead fiddle instructor at the 2011 and 2012 Julian Family Fiddle Camp, and now serves as a member of the Camp’s Steering Committee.
