Jane Cory and Kyle Burghout
Canadian fiddle champions Jane Cory and Kyle Burghout have been performing for over a decade, and have played to audiences across Canada, the USA, and Europe. Both growing up in areas with rich fiddling traditions—Cory in Manitoba and Burghout in the Ottawa Valley—their shows feature a blend of the traditional tunes they grew up playing and contemporary tunes written by fiddlers from across Canada and beyond, including many compositions of their own. Cory and Burghout also draw on their background in classical music to create lush harmonies and exciting arrangements, ranging from lyrical waltzes and airs to toe-tapping jigs and reels. Cory and Kyle are performing as part of the RBC Emerging Artist Mentorship Program.
