Jessica Wedden is an impressive 15 year old fiddler, composer, step dancer and trick fiddler, playing for just five and a half years, amazing all of her audiences.
Jessica was nominated by the 2016 Canadian Folk Music Awards for Young Entertainer of the Year, based on her first CD she recorded when she was 12. Jessica was interviewed live on Kingston’s CKWS–TV, and was profiled in Halifax’s Celtic Life Magazine, December 2014 issue. In 2015 she was a special guest for Larry Mercey, formerly of the seven time Juno Award winning band, the Mercey Brothers and performed at Ottawa’s Marvest at CityFolk Music Festival. In 2016 she was the special guest of J.P. Cormier, performed at the Perth RCMP Musical Ride, & the Havelock Country Jamboree. In 2017 she received a standing ovation at the Blue Skies Music Festival & was chosen for the preliminary round of the Rising Star Talent Competition at the 2017 CNE in Toronto.
With her extreme dedication, no doubt she will thrive as a professional performer, composer and fiddle teacher.
Fiddling is her passion!
