The Screaming E Strings
The Screaming Es or The Screaming E Strings, are a group of pals united by a love of fiddle tunes. After having a great time at the Northern Lights Bluegrass and Old Time Music Camp of 2021, they all expressed an interest in continuing to learn in a supportive environment. Under the patient guidance of Olivia Morelli, Wednesday night fiddle club was born and the goal was to learn a tune a week. The group contains a wild mix of fiddle, guitar, mandolin , bass and banjo players along with some beautiful singing voices. Every week you can find them happily Shoving Pigs Feet into Fires and Nailing Catfish to Trees.
Delia Waskewitch (Bull)
Hi my name is Delia original last name is Bull. I grew up and originally came from Little Pine First Nations but am now from Onion Lake.
As a young girl I loved listening to and learning songs!
As a teenager I would sing to my friends and sang for the first time in public at school! After singing I decided I’d learn how to play guitar!
I started writing my own songs at school since we were learning how to write poetry! I started singing powwow at 18, and have travelled across Canada and USA for singing. Love and enjoy singing! I am grateful for singing as it has helped me many times. Ay hay Delia.
Ruby Laliberté is originally from the community of Ile a la crosse. She is a busy mommy, loves teaching multi grades, and just started learning to play the acoustic.”Music is healing!”
