Kiérah is a very impressive, multi award winning violinist/fiddler from White Rock, B.C. After 13 years of classical violin training, receiving one of the highest marks ever given by the Royal Conservatory of Music on her A.R.C.T. teaching performance exam, she can play just about anything, any style. However, with an Irish/Scottish heritage, Kiérah’s true passion is performing Celtic fiddle music from Ireland, Scotland and Cape Breton, which she studied alongside her classical violin, developing into one of Canada’s finest Celtic fiddle musicians.

Kiérah’s powerful yet playful performance style, her musicality and technical ability all give her performances a fullness even on their own. Blending her original tunes with traditional, Kiérah consistently impresses and captivates her audiences by playing with the clear and precise intonation for which she is known. As comfortable on stage as off, Kiérah delights her audiences with stories of her travels and the writing of her original tunes. While in Ireland and playing with numerous musicians, she was repeatedly likened to Liz Carroll.

Kiérah often works with creative Celtic/Jazz guitarist Adam Dobres (The Ruth Moody Band) loving his unique and impressive approach to traditional music. When available, she also performs with multi instrumentalist Adrian Dolan (The Bills & The Ruth Moody Band) on piano, accordion and mandolin.

Kiérah has also worked with The Miles Black Trio and Celtic guitarist Andy Hillhouse.

“Stonemason’s Daughter”, Kiérah’s 3rd CD, honored the West Coast by receiving a 2013 Canadian Folk Music Award for “Young Performer of the Year”.

As a prolific composer and due to numerous requests for her music, Kiérah has written and published B.C.'s first book of all original fiddle tunes- "Kiérah's Collection” which is sold across Canada by Long and McQuade.
