Searson - Giving Canada's old time sounds a renewal into modern roots; seamlessly blending spirited fiddling, energetic dancing and gorgeous harmonies.
For over a decade now, Searson has toured the world with their unique blend of high energy fiddling, passionate vocals and intricate step dancing. At the core of Searson, are Colleen and Erin Searson, two sisters who hail from the Ottawa Valley, Ontario, Canada. Their spirited live shows feature sibling vocal harmonies, and both sisters "pounding the boards" with Ottawa Valley step dancing. Rounding out the band are top-notch Danno O'Shea - performing and composing for over 17 years on drums and percussion with a jazz degree from Humber College - and bass/guitar player Fraser Gauthier, who has studied at Humber College and Capilano University, gradually gravitating towards roots music. Together, this talented quartet performs sets that feature their original style of "Canadian Celtic Pop", which includes a mix of traditional and original instrumental and vocal selections.
