Benoit Schryer Lefebvre – « Kaleidoscope » CD Available for Purchase
Since Christmas is a-coming and y’all might be looking for a nice gift for that favourite fiddle fan in your family, we thought we’d let you know that Benoit’ s first solo CD « Kaleidoscope » was released this year and is available for purchase. Benoit hasn’t had a whole lot of time to put together a CD release tour or concert this year as he was busy completing the Heritage Stonemasonry course at Algonquin College in Perth (following in his sister Myriam’s and brother-in-law Andre’s footsteps). Oh, and he made the Dean’s List, so we guess he did OK! But the CD is here, and is getting rave reviews from those who have had the opportunity to hear it.

The CD was recorded and produced by Benoit with advice from James Stephens, Shane Cook, and Steafan Hannigan, and features himself on fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, viola, foot percussion, and vocals, with some great musicians backing him up, most notably bassist Joe Phillips who is on every track, but also including Shane Cook (mandolin), Teilhard Frost (fiddle, jaw harp, didgeridoo), Julie Schryer (piano), Zachary Schryer Lefebvre (piano), Eli Howard (whistle), Colin Savoie-Levac (guitar and foot percussion) and Pat O’Gorman (Irish flute). The recording features many of Benoit’s own compositions, a few traditional gems, and a whole slew of original tunes by the likes of Shane Cook, Brian Pickell, Pat O’Gorman, Loretto Reid, and others.
