TRURO - Alycia Putnam knew at the age of nine that music would take centre stage in her life.
After seeing Natalie MacMaster play at the Apple Blossom Festival in Kentville, Truro's Putnam started taking fiddle lessons. She later won a dinner with MacMaster during the 1998 East Coast Music Awards and has been fiddling ever since.
Putnam has attended the Gaelic College and Ceilidh Trail School in Cape Breton and has also honed the art of stepdancing.
Together with dad Robert on guitar and mom Kelly on electric bagpipes, Putnam, 21, has been playing steadily for the past few years around Nova Scotia at various fundraisers and community events, including Upper Clements Park, Rainbow Valley in Cavendish, P.E.I., the DeCoste Centre, Christmas Daddies and EastLink Television's arthritis telethon, to name only a few.
In 2001, Putnam released her first recording, In a Fiddlin' Mood, followed by her second recording, Fiddle Storm, in 2004. That year she was also recognized by the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame Gold Club as a young achiever for her music.
Putnam will open for JP Cormier at the Marigold Cultural Centre Saturday. Show time begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $25 and more information can be obtained at the Marigold box office.
