Island fiddler Richard Wood and his wife, Faye, have created a new scholarship to support the College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada’s fiddle program.
The couple will present the scholarship annually to a College of Piping fiddler. It will cover tuition for lessons for the following year.
“We are so very grateful for the work the College of Piping does to preserve traditional Celtic music and dance in our province,” said Richard Wood in a press release. “We are so honoured to be able to contribute to the future of Prince Edward Island fiddle music.”
The first award will be announced in June 2021, at the college’s year end recital.
