BIO: 

Sherryl is an Ottawa-based teacher, musician and composer. Having been trained in classical and traditional fiddle, she is influenced by the traditions of Irish, Quebecois, Old-tyme, Jazz and Cape Breton music to create her own unique style of music. 

Trained in the Royal Conservatory of Music program and more recently in the O’Connor String Method for Violin, she actively teaches classical violin, fiddle, piano accompaniment as well as theory. She prepares students for RCM exams as well as auditions into violin programs in high school or university. Her students have a 100% success rate passing the RCM exams with Honours or Honours with Distinction. 

She placed 3rd in the Open Class at the Maritime Fiddle Festival in July 2018 as well as taking home the Best Jig award. In 2013, she placed 1st in the Group Class at the Maritime Fiddle Festival with fellow Bb Sisters member, Kimberley Holmes. She was nominated for a 2012 East Coast Music Award for Roots Traditional Group of the Year as a member of the Bb Sisters. She won 2nd place in the “Fiddler Magazine” composers competition for her composition, “Eagles Wings”. She brings many years of experience to the stage both as a fiddler and piano accompanist as a member of the Tiger Island Trio, Patrick Nolet Trio, Heritage Country and as a member of the Bb Sisters.

In celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary and National Fiddling Day on Saturday, May 20, 2017, I have been asked to compose a tune for our current Prime Minister the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau by the Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Association. I have named the tune “Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Waltz”. If you would like a copy of the sheet music or any individual tunes that I have composed, please go to the “store page”. If you would like to purchase or listen to my recordings, go to my “Music page”.

Sherryl has recorded 3 solo albums and 2 as a member of the Bb Sisters.
