This fiddle choir, which features 12 of the best fiddlers in the nation, from Boston Symphony violinists to all-Ireland and national Scottish fiddle champions, is supported by an all-star band, including all-Ireland harpist Kathleen Guilday, flutist Shannon Heaton, guitarist Keith Murphy, and Ralph Gordon on bass, along with step-dancers Nic Gareiss and Shannon Dunne and Aoife O'Donovan on vocals.
Childsplay is unique in that all the violinists and fiddlers perform on instruments made for them by violin-maker Bob Childs. Therefore, the special sound of Childsplay lies not only in the skill of the musicians but also in the warm familial timbre of the instruments they play -- a quality similar to the vocal blending of singers from the same family.
