Virtual Concert with Master Fiddler Tom Fitzgerald and Guitarist Colin Forhan
We welcome all individuals with autism and their families nationwide to attend our interactive concerts from their homes.
11 am Pacific / 2 pm Eastern
While his primary passion has always been playing the fiddle, Tom is also accomplished on the guitar and as a step-dancer. He is a Canadian Grand Master Fiddle Champion (2012) and a Canadian Open Fiddle Champion (2012). Growing up in the centre of the Ottawa Valley, Tom was immersed in the rich tradition of Canadian Old Time fiddling and step dancing. However, over the years he has absorbed elements of other musical styles and traditions such as traditional and contemporary Irish, country, bluegrass, swing, jazz, R&B, and classical, which allows him to fit into almost any musical situation effortlessly.
Colin Forhan plays guitar and tenor banjo, and is based in Brooklyn, NY. He caught the “trad bug” for Irish music in high school and has no interest in slowing down any time soon. Working as an actuary in the city by day, he spends nearly all his time outside of work playing at sessions or rocking out at home.
