Friday Morning began with the youngest competitors of the 66th Canadian Open Old time Fiddle Championship and one thing was made perfectly clear for our judges, Shelburne's Got Talent and this town is where people come to showcase it! Here are a few highlights and there is more video coverage on the way! Keep checking in.

This year's Master of Ceremonies, Scott Woods,(L) is no stranger to the stage or to the Canadian Open Old Time Fiddle Championships in Shelburne having competed here in his past. Woods is a famous trickster, a comedian and an all round entertainer with enough talent to keep you wanting more. A couple years ago, Scott Woods packed Tipling Stage Hall for a Christmas Performance that was so entertaining for the whole family, people were still laughing and giggling on their way out. 

This entertainer makes memories to cherish with his expertise in trickster fiddling, creating  a beautiful memory. Whether Woods is wearing a mitten while rolling on a barrel, playing behind his back and so many other unbelievable feats of talented playing, you have to see his show to believe it! If you get a chance to see this amazing talent live, take it!
