Belgrade High School Auditorium
Calvin Vollrath, Canada’s “Fiddling Sensation” from St. Paul, Alberta, is presenting a concert
Saturday, October 15, at 7:00 p.m. in the Belgrade High School auditorium. The concert is sponsored
by the Montana State Oldtime Fiddles and the Bozeman Folklore Society. Admission is $15, and
seating is open.
Vollrath is a musical prodigy who started playing at the age of 8. He as won several major
competitions, he has composed close to 500 original tunes, and he was inducted into the North
American Fiddlers’ Hall of Fame in 2011. He was commissioned to compose five songs, each
representing a different style of Canadian fiddling, to perform at the opening ceremonies for the 2010
Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
Calvin’s concert will feature a wide range of music, ranging from Celtic and Canadian folk tunes to
Western Swing. He will be accompanied by Clinton Pelletier on guitar and Kimberly Holmes on
piano. Pelletier, from Alberta, and Holmes, from Nova Scotia, are outstanding musicians in their
own rights, and they strongly complement Vollrath’s fiddling.
