TRURO – Renowned Canadian fiddler Scott Woods is bringing a tribute to Don Messer’s Jubilee to Truro.

Scott Woods Old Time Jubilee reunites Cape Breton tenor Tommy Leadbeater as Charlie Chamberlain with Woods as Messer, and features Lynda Lewis as Marg Osborne.

The two-hour performance honours the days when Messer and his Islanders ruled the airwaves. The show will feature fiddle music, step dancing with 16-year-old step dance champion Emma March, trick fiddling, family humour and more.

East Coast Music Award winner Bruce Timmins will join Woods on the guitar and bass, and Wes Dymond will be on the drums.

This year’s jubilee will see two performances at the Marigold Cultural Centre on April 27 – one at 2:30 p.m., the second at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for children aged six to 12. Children under five are admitted free. Tickets can be purchased at MacQuarries Pharmasave on the Esplanade, or by calling 1-855-726-8896.
