‘Tribute to Don Messer’-2017, 45″x45″
This is the time of year when new memories are made and old ones are enjoyed…
Don Messer was the youngest of 11 children and began playing fiddle at the age of five. This huge beautiful fiddle sculpture is a tribute to him in Harvey, the town closest to Tweedside, New Brunswick where he was born. The fiddle is “larger than life” just like he was.
Canadians couldn’t get enough of Don Messer, as television came of age in the 50’s and 60’s. He popularized East Coast fiddle music wherever he went… and he went everywhere, entertaining Canadians young and old.
