World @ Noon: Eh?! with Violinist Anne Lederman

Jan 23, 2014, 12:30pm-1:30pm

Eh?! is Emilyn Stam, Anne Lederman and James Stephens.

Fiddler/singer/composer Anne Lederman is strongly rooted in several Canadian musical traditions, old and new: Metis and French-Canadian, Scots-Irish, Eastern European and African. She sings in several languages and also plays mandolin, tenor guitar, piano, bones, feet, jawharp and more. 

Lederman began her professional career as a fiddler in the late 1970s touring with Harry Hibbs, Newfoundland's “favourite son”. In 1983, as half of duo Muddy York with Ian Bell, she released the ground-breaking recording Scatter The Ashes: Music of Old Ontario (recently  re-released on CD). 

In 1985/86, Lederman returned to Manitoba to study and record the music of Native and Métis fiddlers, resulting in the four-record archival set of recordings Old Native and Métis Fiddling in Manitoba, re-released in 2004 as a double CD set on The National Museum's Archive label. This was followed by work with Izvor, an ensemble devoted to Balkan, Greek and other East European traditions, and then The Flying Bulgar Klezmer Band with whom she recorded two albums: The Flying Bulgar Klezmer Band and Agada
