Great Audience For Fiddle Christmas Concert

Portage La Prairie Manitoba CanadaImage via WikipediaA great crowd enjoyed An Old Time Fiddle Christmas Concert with Patti Lamoureux at the Trinity United Church in Portage la Prairie.  The 2 hour concert featured a three piece band with a variety of fiddle classics and some new tunes as well.

Event Committee Chair Diane Stevenson says a number of people in the area enjoy fiddle music and felt it was a great opportunity to host a fundraising event.  She says the money is going to Trinity United Church to help with their ministry in Portage and surrounding area.

Stevenson adds everybody in attendance enjoys Patti's music saying she sees folks bobbing their heads and tapping their toes.  She estimates 75 to 100 people turned out for the concert adding they had to create new tickets to sell at the door.

Fiddler Patti Lamoureux says she has been playing the fiddle since she was 4 years old and can't remember a time she didn't play the fiddle.  She adds coming to Portage la Prairie and playing for such a great and appreciative audience is an honor."
