Wisconsin-born blues fiddler to play Sat. | Arts & Culture
Jazz violinist, Fiddlehead Band take stage at Opera House
A nationally touring blues fiddle player will take the stage in Stoughton Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
Wisconsin-born Randy Sabien, a “jazz violinist,” will perform with the Fiddlehead Band in the Stoughton Opera House's a jazz show.
In 1977 Sabien enrolled at the Boston Berklee College of Music. A year later he became the founder and chair of the college’s new jazz string department, which he headed for three years. In 1989, Sabien started his own record label, Fiddlehead Music.
His subsequent albums have received rave reviews from Jazz Times Magazine, USA Today and Billboard Magazine, who called Sabien the "heir to Stephane Grappelli."
Randy Sabien and The Fiddlehead Band is fueled by Clyde Stubblefield on drums, Jeff Eckels on upright bass, Dan Kleiman on piano and keyboards, Jim Ouska on guitar, Dave Richeson on percussion and drums and Randy on fiddle. The Stoughton Opera House said the group is a rare musical offering that finds the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Tickets are available by calling 877-4400 or online through the Opera House box office.
