     A Canadian and U.S. National fiddle champion, Shane Cook is a multi-instrumentalist who has distinguished himself as a master of the Canadian old-time fiddle tradition. As a four-member group of multi-instrumentalists, singers and step dancers, Shane Cook & The Woodchippers deliver performances that are an exciting mix of dynamic musicianship, high energy and engaging stage presence. Their superbly crafted arrangements are a modern and exhilarating approach to fiddle tunes and dance. 
     Many of the group’s fiddle tunes, songs and dances have roots tracing back to the lumber camps of Ontario as well as Ireland, Scotland, Quebec and the American South.  Each band member also contributes their own compositions and songs, blending folk, roots, country, contemporary and jazz styles. Without fail, their Ottawa Valley style step dancing always electrifies. 
     Joining Shane as The Woodchippers are: Joe Philips (Jayme Stone’s Folklife) on double bass, guitar and vocals, Emily Flack (Leahy) on piano, vocals and dance and Kyle Waymouth (5-time Canadian National Step Dance Champion) on guitar, tenor banjo, and dance.
