Fiddlers GreenThe Friends of Fiddlers Green Once again, it's time for the annual Ontario tour of this now far-flung but still legendary musical ensemble. The once Toronto-based "Friends" boasts versatile musicians, fine singers, songwriters, joke tellers, a fiery dragon, an Order of Canada, a Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal and one of the longest track records in Canadian Folk Music. This totally uncategorizable collective has been together, with a few personnel changes, since their inauguration at Toronto's Fiddler's Green coffeehouse in 1971. Nobody, not even the Friends themselves, can predict what might happen during one of their concerts, but it always includes humour, powerful vocal harmony, great musicianship, social commentary and an irresistible urge to dance. The Friends were recipients of the 2003 Estelle Klein Award, given by the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals for service to folk music in Ontario.
