But he went on to become a child violin star on Canadian ATV Television for the Maritime Provinces, playing old time fiddle.
Today, he actively organises and performs with several classical chamber music ensembles, orchestras and duos, and a heavy metal band, Dilechmoor.   

Ian is an outstanding composer in all the genres he plays in, including new classical, folk and traditional styles.
