Here is the debut CD from an exciting ensemble of ten talented violinists and fiddlers, representing a wonderful array of genres and styles. You'll hear: classical, jazz, country, rock, old-time, Texas-style, Bluegrass, Gypsy, Celtic and more. The music is both a showcase for the virtuosity of the musicians, and a tribute to the amazingly versatile, complex and lyrically romantic violin. Their performances are "an evening of show-stopping hits strung together in glorious sequence... an awesome range of music. If it's violin or fiddle music you're after, you can't go wrong with Bowfire." - Robert Reid, Kitchener-Waterloo Record. Assembled by acclaimed jazz violinist Lenny Solomon, the group's Artistic Director, the CD features eleven violinists, piano, bass, drums, guitar, and cello. Lenny is joined by the ten other acclaimed violinists: Quebecois jazz talent Stephane Allard; classical virtuosos Moshe Hammer, Lara St. John, Scott St. John and Peter De Sotto; Bluegrass fiddler Ray Legere; George Gao, virtuoso of the Chinese erhu (commonly known in the West as the 'Chinese violin', this two-stringed bowed instrument is capable of producing sad, mysterious, or joyful melodies); Celtic fiddler Richard Wood; fiddler Shane Cook, and Daniel Lapp, whose wide-ranging interests embrace a host of modern styles.
