Ivan and Vivian Hicks Concert Sunday at 2pm
February 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC-4
Ivan and Vivian Hicks to bring their show to Trinity United Church in Summerside
Trinity United Church in Summerside is honored to present Ivan and Vivian Hicks as part of their 2019 – 2020 Concert Series on Sunday, February 2, at 2:00 in the afternoon.
Ivan and Vivian Hicks are distinguished for their contribution to preserve and promote old-time fiddling throughout North America. Their music has roots steeped in tradition but their approach to getting it into the hearts and minds of people is modern and innovative. Whether they are supporting school children to learn the violin or inviting entire motor coaches of intrigued music lovers into their home, their down-home approach means new friends and fans of their music emerge each day. They blend this with a busy schedule of performances yearly across Canada and the United States and an active interest in recognizing new talented musicians and bringing them to the stage with them. Ivan and Vivian have won many honors and accolades throughout the years, including both being inducted into the New Brunswick Country Music Hall of Fame.
Ivan Hicks, a member of the North American Fiddlers Hall of Fame, has been playing old-time music for 70 years, is an accomplished composer, recording artist, performer and mentor and lively ambassador for Atlantic Canada’s heritage. He believes his musical talent is a gift, a special legacy passed to him from his parents, and he has invested it generously in present and future generations. His contribution was recognized recently when he was awarded the Order of New Brunswick.
