With FiddleFire! Chris McKhool brings his love of violin to young audiences. Supported by a spectacular band, Chris introduces several musical styles, including jazz, blues, Roma, flamenco, classical, funk, folk, East Coast fiddling and more!  This CD features guest performances from some of Canada’s finest musicians including Ken & Chris Whiteley, Sultans of String, Anne Lederman, George Gao, Rick Lazar, Roman Borys (from The Gryphon Trio), Ernie Tollar and more. FiddleFire! has been performed live at festivals and schools across Canada, including Toronto Harbourfront’s Cushion Concert series, the Distillery Jazz Festival, and was the headliner for Toronto’s First Night at the Skydome/Rogers Centre.

“Chris McKhool and the boys were fantastic!  They can play my Bar Mitzvah.”

– Bob Ezrin, Producer (Pink Floyd, Kiss)
