4x NA FIDDLE CHAMPION: IVONNE HERNANDEZ

4 TIMES NORTH AMERICAN FIDDLE CHAMPION: IVONNE HERNANDEZ w. Dan Weisenberger and Oliver Swain

Some people are born to play music. By the age of three, Ivonne Hernandez was playing violin by ear, and soon she was playing everything from her mother’s favourite Maritime reels to her father’s Chilean folk music roots.

Ivonne is the reigning 5 time Grand North American Fiddle Champion, and has performed with or opened for Alan Jackson, Gloria Estefan, Jann Arden, Oscar Lopez, Natalie MacMaster, Earth Wind and Fire, Steve Winwood, Burt Bacharach, Juan Louis Guerra, Rosa Pasos, Ben Hepner and legendary film composer Howard Shore.

The young musician has been featured on television and radio, at folk music and fiddle festivals around the world, and played for the Governor General of Canada. Her debut recording, Playing With Fire, garnered critical raves, and in 2006 Ivonne released In Time (Warner Music Canada).

Ivonne Hernandez has mastered Canada’s traditional fiddle music. She embodies the country’s 21st century multiculturalism, and her music reflects the new century’s marriage of cultural influences. The young fiddler transforms her folk music roots into an exciting and dynamic new form. Looking for something new in folk music? This is it!
