Bio

With roots in the Canadian old-time fiddle tradition, Everything Fitz has brought their unique stage show to audiences across North America. Featuring the high-energy fiddling and step dancing of four of Canada's finest young musicians, this family act combines a variety of musical styles- everything from Celtic, bluegrass, western swing, old-time jigs and reels, novelty tunes and choreographed step dance routines. This unique act has delighted audiences across the country- from their St. Patrick's Day show at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas to the Festival of American Music in Branson Missouri, Everything Fitz presents a well-polished and unforgettable musical experience.

Julie, Kerry, and Tom are all champion fiddlers and provide 3-part fiddle harmonies as well as solo improvisations on fiddle and mandolin. Additional instrumentation includes their brother Pat on percussion along with parents Pam and Paddy providing accompaniment on the keyboard and bass guitar. An audience favorite is the award- winning step dancing routines performed by all four siblings.
