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).
