Discover a powerful fusion of female vocals, fiddle-style violin music and rhythm.

The Fiddle Chicks started out as a musical experiment, creating a unique minimalist sound. From their inspiring originals to unique arrangements of songs from the rich heritage of folk music, The Fiddle Chicks have proven themselves to be one of SA’s most endearing and original acts.

Their musical style ranges from Traditional Celtic, European, Gypsy, Blues and Roots and American Folk, but it is their original compositions and rich fiddle soundscapes utilising some clever digital effects, which really shine through.

The Fiddle Chicks have played at Festivals all around Australia including:

Adelaide Fringe Festival, the National Folk Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Apollo Bay Music Festival, National Celtic Festival, Kapunda Celtic Festival, Semaphore Music Festival, Prospect Street Fair, Fleurieu Festival as well as performances designed for school audiences.

It was a fantastic experience showing us how to enjoy the happiness of learning an instrument, and it really impressed me by all the different things they could do with their instruments - More people should see them because they would be a great influence on other young violinists - It was the most brilliant string concert I’ve ever seen.
