Raised in northern BC on a blend of Classical and Canadian Old Time music, Brittany Iwanciwski (they/them) has been playing fiddle tunes for a long time. Their music encompasses the thrill of being at an Irish session long after dark and a natural blurring of genres discovered while busking on the streets of Victoria.
Now living in Toronto, Brittany plays Irish music and collaborates with all kinds of musicians including the art rock band Tidal Wave and folk trio Wild Bloom.
After almost giving up on music during the pandemic, reconnecting with other musicians and the fiddle community reminded Brittany of everything they love about playing and creating music. This resulted in their debut EP, "Taken By Fairies," recorded in their final year at the Humber College Bachelor of Music. The title track is a nod to their queer identity and incorporates Irish and west coast fiddle.
"Taken By Fairies" will be released summer 2023.
