Shane Cook & The Woodchippers


Shane Cook & The Woodchippers rely on their deep foundation in the traditional music, song, and dance of Ontario for the core of their sound, yet also draw on styles as broad as Celtic, folk, roots, bluegrass, and swing. Their superbly crafted compositions and arrangements are a modern, exhilarating approach to fiddle tunes, song, and dance. A Canadian and U.S. National fiddle champion, Shane Cook is a multi-instrumentalist who has distinguished himself as a master of the Canadian old-time fiddle tradition. Joining Shane as a four-member group of multi-instrumentalists, singers, and step dancers, The Woodchippers are Emily Flack (Leahy) on piano, vocals and dance, Joe Phillips (Art of Time Ensemble) on vocals, double bass and guitar, and Kyle Waymouth (five-time national step dance champion) on guitar, tenor banjo, and dance. Shane leads The Woodchippers through a joyous and diverse musical journey through fresh, original fiddle tunes and songs. Celtic Colours is happy to welcome Shane back to the Festival with this exciting group.
