Daniel Gervais

Daniel has been playing the violin since the age of five. He plays a variety of fiddle styles and classical violin. Daniel is currently working towards a B.Mus/B.Ed. at the University of Alberta as well as performing, recording and teaching. Daniel has had the opportunity to tour with Clinton Pelletier as well as Zéphyr, a French-Canadian dance group, performing at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C., Mondial des cultures in Drummondville, PQ, and Folkmoot USA Festival in North Carolina. Daniel has also appeared on countless television and radio programs such as Good Morning Canada and various CBC broadcasts. In November 2002, he travelled to London, Ontario to receive the Conservatory Canada Speake Medal of Excellence for Grade 8 Strings for having attained the highest mark in Canada for that particular discipline. Daniel was honoured to have competed at the Canadian Grand Masters Fiddle Championship in August of 2003, representing Alberta. In 2004, Daniel returned to this competition and was a top eleven finalist. In the spring of 2003 Daniel released his debut album Flying Fiddle. Daniel's second album entitled Endless Possibilities was released in April 2005. Just recently, Daniel was selected by the Regroupement artistique francophone de l'Alberta for a provincial tour under the title of “COUP DE FOUDRE”. He was also nominated for “Young Performer of the Year” at the Canadian Folk Music Awards.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
