Wood’s Canadian Folk Music Award-nominated and ECMA award-winning eighth album, “Unbroken,” which was mastered by legendary, multi-Grammy Award winning Bob Ludwig from Gateway Studios, has reviewers praising it as some of his best work to date.
Along with winning countless championships as both a step dancer and fiddler, Richard has also earned the Don Messer Memorial Trophy--twice.
Wood has toured the world extensively with highlights including Epcot at Disney World, The Lincoln Center, and Carnegie Hall. He has also performed for special televised events and programs such as “Good Morning America,” “The David Letterman Show,” “Rita and Friends,” and for a special Canada Day telecast on Parliament Hill which was aired by CBC in front of a live audience of over 100,000. He has shared stages and tour buses with heavyweights like The Chieftains and Shania Twain, and he’s played for prime ministers, governor generals, the Queen, and the Emperor of Japan, but he says he is most proud to have entertained Canada’s Armed Forces in the North Pole, Bosnia, and twice in Afghanistan.
One of PEI’s best exports and always the proud island ambassador, Wood has brought his highly sought-after, energetic brand of music around the world, touring extensively in Australia, Europe, Asia, and all across North America.
Keelin Wedge began performing at age five. She is a prominent member of Fiddlers Sons & Lennie Gallant’s band. Keelin has three albums and is currently working on her first vocal album of original songs and tunes.
