Calvin Vollrath is sensational in the true sense of the word. He has composed close to 800 fiddle tunes, recorded 69 of his own albums, and was twice crowned the Grand North American Old Tyme Fiddle Champion. Considered by his peers as “the” driving force behind the revitalization of fiddle music in North America, Calvin has taught at the Canadian Grand Masters Fiddle Camp in Ottawa since its inception in 1996, been awarded the 2005 Lifetime Achievement Award at the Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Championship, and was inducted into the North American Fiddlers Hall of Fame in 2011. Calvin returns to The Bassment stage with Winnipeg multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Rusu. Recognized as a musical phenom, Jeremy plays jazz piano, drums, country lead guitar, bluegrass mandolin, accordion, and bagpipes.
