“Celtic Traditions Across Canada” is an interactive, educational performance of traditional and contemporary Celtic music found across Canada. After taking her program to nearly 200 schools in B.C. and Alberta, students and staff love the music and are inspired by Kierah’s confidence, knowledge, and outstanding playing. She plays 8 very diverse styles of traditional and contemporary fiddle music and explains the history behind them. Along with telling the students about the importance of goals and hard work, Kiérah demonstrates by her own example the results of always setting goals and working hard in order to achieve them.
“Our staff and students were overwhelmed with the degree of Kiérah’s professionalism. In more than 30 years as a teacher and administrator, Kierah stands out as one of the best performers that I have had visit my schools” – Glen Hilder, principal of Green Timbers Elementary, Surrey, B.C.
