Artist Biography

Aurora Fiddle Society (AFS) promotes fiddling in Yellowknife and the North Slave Region through fiddle jams, workshops and other fiddle related events. AFS brings people of all ages together to enjoy fiddle music and work cooperatively with other organizations to the benefit of fiddling.

AFS builds on the traditions of Strings Across the Sky, founded in the High Arctic in 1988 by Andrea Hansen while she was a member of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. On January 14, 2008, the Yellowknife chapter of Strings Across the Sky evolved into AFS, an independent NWT Registered Society.
