This Canadian duo is a truly crème de la crème pairing. Together they represent diverse and hugely successful musical careers laden with approval and nominations including JUNO, Canadian Folk Music, Western Canadian Music and Grammy awards.

Pierre Schryer is one of his country’s leading traditional fiddlers. He has captivated and thrilled audiences around the world with his energy, dexterity, depth of character and warmth. He takes us on an exhilarating rollercoaster ride that covers styles from Irish, Scottish, Québecois, and Cape Breton to Canadian old-time, American Swing and everything in between. As leader of the Pierre Schryer Band he has built an international reputation from touring throughout Canada, the USA, and Europe since the mid-90's.

An accomplished luthier and artist, he plays one of his own violins and creates the cover art and design for his recordings. Pierre was also the Artistic Director of the “Canadian Celtic Celebration,” a festival presented in Thunder Bay, Ontario for 16 years.

Similarly, Adam Dobres is a multi-talented guitarist who is equally at home with Bluegrass, Celtic, Jazz, Gypsy, Country, Folk, Old Time, Rock and Blues, and he too, has toured the world. He made a big impact playing with the acclaimed old-time string band, Outlaw Social and has toured extensively with the Ruth Moody Band. In 2016, he released his self-titled, first solo album - an eclectic mix of his own compositions revealing many influences and his absolute grace and superb versatility on the instrument that has won him so much praise.

Scotland’s fiddle king, Blazin’ Bruce Macgregor was so impressed by Pierre and Adam’s latest CD, Mandorla, that he “played the album every day in the car” as he tried to learn the various tunes. Featuring tracks on his Travelling Folk Show at BBC Radio Scotland, he said he had caught them ‘live’ and concluded they were “absolutely sensational.”

Reviewing the album for Irish Music magazine, Alex Monaghan said that the combination of fiddle and guitar “doesn’t get much better than this.”
