Fiddlehead Soup was born in 2013 when three members of a celtic ceilidh band got together to learn some tunes and songs well outside of the traditional celtic fare.
Intrigued by the odd rhythms of Scandinavia and other traditional music and loving the feel of different languages on the tongue, the trio soon amassed a set of highly eclectic music in 9 different languages and spanning several centuries. The trio also began writing their own music and tunes, drawing inspiration from events happening around them.
Featuring veteran folkie Doug Hendry on 12-string and cittern and mother-and-daughter fiddle team Glenna Hunter and Ursa Meyer (who soon added viola, piano and ‘cello to their repertoire), Fiddlehead Soup is known for it’s engaging and earthy performances, lush instrumentation and captivating 3-part harmonies.
Following the release of an EP “Unfurling” in 2014, the trio has been performing as relentlessly as work (and high school) allow. Fiddlehead Soup has become a fixture at festivals and coffee houses around Eastern Ontario.
With the pending release of its first full-length CD, “Alterity”, the trio is embarking on a summer tour across to Canada’s west coast, bringing its unique blend of music to new audiences in venues large and small along the way.
