Sara and James Nelson are siblings from Lower Coverdale NB that are bringing the traditional toe tapping Maritime Fiddle music to audiences around the Maritimes, and beyond.
Finding a love for fiddle music early on, these first generation musical siblings have been finding people to entertain for as long as they can remember. Starting out at church functions, local jam nights, or wondering from room to room at the hospital and nursing homes, these two have always enjoyed playing a tune for someone.
From 2014 - 2019, they were the musicians for the "Molly Kool Kitchen Party" which took place weekly at Fundy National Park. Here they enjoyed performing for tourists from all over the world.
They are a part of the Sussex Avenue Fiddlers under the direction of Ivan and Vivian Hicks who perform at fundraisers and community events around the Maritimes. Also they have been part of the Plucky Pizzacatos, a student group under the direction of Samantha Robichaud. In 2021, they both joined the cast of the Lumber Jill's under the direction of Stacey Read, and have performed at festivals in PEI and NB, including the Festival of Small Halls, and Levee on the Lake.
