The legendary Nova Scotia fiddler Richard Wood returns for a concert at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 28, at Old South Church in Farmington. He will be joined by guest musician Keelin Wedge.

Named by MacLean’s Magazine as one of the Top 100 Canadians to watch in the 21st Century, Wood has blown away sold-out audiences around the globe with his traditional-born, fiery-brand of Celtic music. Richard has played for Prime Ministers, Governor Generals, Queen Elizabeth II, princes, princesses, King Charles III, and the Emperor of Japan, but he is most proud to have entertained Canada’s Armed Forces in the North Pole, Bosnia, and twice in Afghanistan.

His 30 year career includes highlights such as touring with musical heavyweights like Shania Twain and The Chieftans, and performing around the world at places like the Lincoln Centre, the Kennedy Centre, and Carnegie Hall. Wood has appeared on special televised events and programs such as The Tonight Show, Good Morning America, and treasured Canadian programs of days-gone-by like Up Home Tonight and The Rita MacNeil Show. He also performed for a special Canada Day on Parliament Hill which was nationally televised by CBC in front of a live audience of over 100,000.

His Canadian Folk Music Award-nominated and ECMA award-winning 8th album, “Unbroken,” was mastered by legendary, multi-Grammy Award winning Bob Ludwig from Gateway Studios.
