From the early age of 3, Josiah Pratt set off on his musical career. Natural ability will only take a talented artist so far, but a strong will and determination has helped push this young man forward and continues to drive his development and success.
Playing a range of music from classic favourites like the Beatles right through to today’s artists like Ed Sheeran, Josiah’s acoustic style has something for everyone!
We look forward to welcoming Josiah and having him perform for us at the Market a few times this season!
New to the Market this week, May 27, 2017 is another talented young musician, Caroline Boulter.
Caroline is a Grade 7 student at New Glasgow Academy. She has been playing the violin since she was three years old. She just moved to New Glasgow from Lethbridge Alberta in 2016. She continues to study the violin with Christy Hodder at the Maritime Conservatory in Halifax. Through the Maritime Conservatory, she joined the Nova Scotia Youth Ambassadors. Under the direction of Christy Hodder, this group of young violinists travels around Nova Scotia and Canada performing both traditional fiddle music and classical repertoire. Caroline has been the recipient of many awards both since coming to Nova Scotia and in Lethbridge. She has travelled over from Alberta to New England to Halifax as part of her music education. Caroline is busking today to help raise money for the NSYA as they plan to travel to the Tavistock Fiddle Festival in Ontario and the end of June.
