Zoe Darrow and JJ Chaisson, mentee and mentor, 7PM this Sunday at the Iron Horse

One of the renowned Chaisson fiddlers from Bear River, Prince Edward Island, Canada, JJ Chaisson has been wowing audiences since the age of 6. JJ brings his own distinct style and strength to the fiddle art. He has played across the Maritimes and New England. He has 3 albums to his credit. The newest CD, The Gift, just won best album of 2008 by P.E.I. Music Awards. JJ selected the name of his album to celebrate the gift of his new baby daughter, as well as, the awareness he holds that the fiddle has enhanced his life. He also appears on the 2007 release, The Chaisson Family – Generations.

JJ has been Zoe Darrow's mentor since they met as children fiddling. Zoe has asked her mentor, on tour in New England right now, to join her Sunday evening, March 15th at the Iron Horse Music Hall to be her special guest.

A wild night of some of the best fiddling ever is in store for ticket holders. Don’t miss out!! Tickets here.
