Product Notes

Constantly in pursuit of the boundaries of the violin, and in turn pushing them as far as he can, Brendan Carey Block (the 2000 - 2001 US National Junior Scottish Fiddle Champion) has been performing since the age of ten. His love for the traditional fiddle music of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia has had a huge part in crafting his current innovative and energetic sound which now incorporates Jazz and Rock elements as well as ideas from the many Celtic regions of the world. Brendan has toured and recorded with many great artists including the renowned Glengarry Bhoys and the Boston-based band Annalivia. He currently performs as a solo performer with various accompanying musicians, or as a duo with guitarist Eric McDonald. Brendan also frequently performs with the Scottish band Cantrip. In the past he has been an active member of the contra dance and concert bands Matching Orange, Murphy's Shadow, and his duo Double Apex, a brand new electro/acoustic approach to contra dancing. In 2009, Brendan was invited by the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress to perform there and at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC in their 'Homegrown: the Music of America' series, representing New Hampshire. He was the youngest ever featured performer in the series. His long-awaited self-titled album, released in September, 2013, is a collection of many of Brendan's original fiddle reels, jigs, and airs, along with some brilliant traditional sets in tribute to his mentors and teachers from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. On it he recorded multiple violins along with accompaniment on guitar, bass, and percussion.
