Alex Kusturok with Tim Turrett


Alex Kusturok has emerged as a formidable force in the world of traditional and contemporary fiddle music. Immersed in the rich Métis fiddle culture since childhood, Alex’s journey in music began in the lively old-time dances of Manitoba. His music is a dynamic blend, heavily influenced by Quebecois and Cape Breton fiddle styles. However, the essence of Métis fiddling remains the heart and soul of his performances. The heartbeat of his music lies in the power of his footwork and his versatility has kept him in high demand across Canada. In Alex’s captivating shows, audiences experience a rich tapestry of culture, music, and dance, interwoven with personal stories and an infectious energy. His performances are more than just concerts; they are a celebration of heritage, an exhibition of unparalleled musical talent, and a heartfelt journey through the rhythms of the fiddle. Alex’s the most recent album, Wedged in Tradition, was released earlier this year. He continues to inspire and educate, leaving an indelible mark on the Canadian music scene and beyond, championing the sounds and stories of his Métis heritage. Alex is performing at Celtic Colours for the fourth time this year and once again will be accompanied by Newfoundland and Labrador guitar and bass player Tim Turrett.
