As a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Whitey is in great demand.
"I grew up in a house full of musical influences. There was always something on the turntable or someone visiting with a guitar". As a nephew of Canadian composer Harry Somers, Whitey Somers found an early love of music.
"Music of one sort or another would be a good way to describe my feel. No one style binds me, I let the music find me." From blues to folk & alt rock or country, Whitey's songs reflect the world at large.

The pride and professionalism you see when this group performs is partly a result of their commitment to hard work. Fiddelium members rehearse together for 3 hours each week. They are also expected to follow a rigorous personal practice regime which includes recording segments of their individual practice time. The directors of the group listen to each individual’s recordings weekly and give specific feedback as to how the performance can be improved. Complete precision is expected in all aspects of playing including intonation, timing, and bowing.
Come and see the magic at Beban Park from 4- 6:30 PM on July 4th
