and his award winning team have been regarded as the Celtic, Country, and Folk/Rock specialists.
With Bowen's unparalleled violin skills, Steve and his ultra-talented team are defining Fiddlestix as one of the top Canadian bands due to their signature sound, instrumental layering, multiple lead vocal tradeoffs, and incredible four-part harmonies.
Fiddlestix’s style was aptly named 'FIDDLE-ROCK' by Y108 Rocks Hamilton due to their upbeat, full energy song choices that flex genres and blend styles.
The Readers Choice Diamond Awards were recently presented to the team for Best Entertainment 2022 Milton/Halton, 2021 Milton/Halton, and 2021 Oakville and Milton/Halton 2020.

The team has shared the stage with some of Canada's finest musicians, including Big Sugar, Leahy, Gord Downie, Great Big Sea, Jim Cuddy, The Irish Rovers, Honeymoon Suite and many more.
Fiddlestix headlined the CNE East Coast Kitchen Party 2018 and 2019 and recently performed an astonishing run of 36 shows over 5 days for the Celtic Festival at the CNE - TheEX 2022.
