Versatile and inventive, they delivered a terrific sound - many of the pieces were either originals or arranged by them - and their repertoire is inexhaustible...One hold’s one’s breath at how much energy can be released from one of such small stature..

Ian Mardon

Ian Mardon grew up in Halifax, Canada in a musical family.  A child prodigy, he has been playing violin since the age of four. When he was six, he fell backwards onto his violin and  broke it.
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.
