single post

Áine Schryer-O’Gorman has been playing fiddle for 16 years, learning music while touring and playing for dances with their family; being surrounded by the magic of their parents’ (Julie Schryer and Pat O’Gorman) music camp AlgomaTrad; and being influenced by many exceptional and generous musicians including their brother Benoît, uncles Raymond, Louis, Pierre, and Dan, and the Brian Pickell Band. They grew up competing at Ontario fiddle contests, winning the 18 & under category at the Pembroke Fiddle Contest in 2019. In the past few years they have been focussed on developing their Irish style of playing, with mentorship from Patrick Ourceau. They now reside in Toronto where they balance passing on the traditions of Canadian fiddling as a teacher with World on a String, and bringing their passion for music into their career in community arts (Jumblies Theatre, Gather Round Singers, Arts for All).
