Fiddle Frenzy is an inspiring group of young fiddlers from Warwick, ages 6 to 16, who play different styles of fiddling including Irish, Bluegrass, Old Time and Scottish. Fiddle Frenzy has played at the Irish Festival in Washingtonville, with Emish during the Warwick Summer Arts Festival, at various nursing homes, the Albert Wisner Public Library, ShopRite in Warwick and other local music venues.

“We are thrilled to be able to support our community and student education through performing great music,” said Jeanne Fox, the quartet’s cellist. “These are the mandates of our group.”

Fiddle Frenzy’s leader, Christy Brown of the Celtic rock group Emish, added: “Pine Island Chamber of Commerce does so much for our community, we are glad we can support this effort.”
