I just won the Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Championship for the second time and I also received the People's Choice Award! I am very honoured. I was the champion in 2011 and I decided to compete again because it was the first time the competition took place in Alberta and I did not want to miss it. Thank you to everyone for the outpouring of support! This year's CGM was one of the highest points of my musical career. Many thanks to my wife Aline, my family and friends. Congrats to Calvin Vollrath, Rhea Labrie, the CGM committee and volunteers for an extraordinary success. Congrats to all the competitors! Also, kudos to Clint Pelletier, Jeremy Rusu, and Melika Lemelin for their outstanding accompaniment. Cheers!
