2017 performance schedule
2017 Childsplay Tour
For over 20 years, Childsplay has performed throughout the United States and Europe, showcasing different styles of fiddle music — played on instruments made by Cambridge-based violin-maker Bob Childs. Childsplay’s over two dozen musicians come from all over the United States and Sweden and include some of the leading virtuosos in traditional and contemporary fiddle music. With high-energy dance music and luscious string arrangements, the group will once again feature the inventive step dancing of Kieran Jordan and Kevin Doyle, with special choreography also performed this year by Amanda Carey, Hannah DeRusha, and Rebecca McGowan, members of the Kieran Jordan Dance company.
Shows this year will take place in Bangor, Maine, Portland, Maine, and Somerville, Massachusetts.
