For more than 10 years this duo has been writing and publishing fiddle and piano music books under the Cross Canada Fiddle banner, which soon added a teaching side and their flagship ensemble, Fiddlelium. Now Trish and Geoff Horrocks have been presented with Nanaimo’s 2020 Honour in Culture Award.

Last year fiddle instructors Trish and Geoff Horrocks attended the City of Nanaimo’s Culture and Heritage Award ceremony and this year they’re winners themselves. They were there with their Fiddelium ensemble, which performed during the event.
