The Fiddleheads provide a first experience for many young Yukon musicians to develop their talents and expand their skills. Through the years, the group has performed everywhere from the Canada Winter Games to the Commissioner's Christmas Party. Recent shows include the Fiddle History of Canada and a Fiddle History of Yukon Transportation.
In 2017, the Fiddleheads released their first album, A Yukon Fiddle Celebration, featuring tunes from the repertoires of traditional fiddlers from across the territory. In 2018 they combined Cape Breton fiddle music with Bhangra dancing and created a fusion video with Gurdeep Pandher that reached over 73,000 views on youtube.
This season the group is collaborating on performances and exchanges with the Nanaimo youth ensemble Fiddelium, and the Youth Valley Fiddlers from Smithers, BC. Their musical theme this year is a francophone fiddle celebration.
The Fiddleheads are under the direction of Keitha Clark.
