Sumaia Jackson & Adrianna Ciccone are two fiddlers quickly making a name for themselves in the new acoustic roots music scene. This new collaboration explores the narrowing gap between American & Canadian fiddle styles, creating a unique and driving sound.

Adrianna’s style, while rooted in the Ottawa Valley & Quebecois fiddle tradition, continues to be inspired by the many different regional fiddles styles of Canada and the world, including Cape Breton, Appalachian, Irish, Scottish, Scandinavian & Italian music. Adrianna’s desire to explore new musical languages is reflected in her compositions and arrangements which draw from traditions of the past while forging a unique musical identity. She is a Maritime Open Fiddle Champion, and an active fiddle & step dance instructor, both in Boston and over Skype.

Sumaia has roots in Scottish and Irish fiddle styles, and for the past few years has delved into the rich tradition of Appalachian Old Time and American fiddle. Throughout her life on the West Coast, Sumaia was immersed in California's diverse music scene, blending elements of Jazz, Bluegrass, Scandinavian and Celtic styles. She has taken aspects of each of these styles and incorporated them into her playing of American Old Time tunes creating a vibrant, groovy sound.

The two young ladies met while at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, studying Old Time, Canadian, Celtic, Bluegrass & Jazz. These diverse influences are evident in their intricate arrangements, which explore old tunes in new ways while demonstrating a deep understanding of the melodic and rhythmic aspects of traditional roots music.
