"Although the audience was barely reserved with the first two groups and
showered the musicians with applause, it went off with the Canadian group
SEARSON. The spectators were carried away by the cool rhythms, the roaring
percussion, the funky....electric bass sounds. Above all, Colleen Searson
turned out to be a true devil's violinist. She played her fiddle so that the bow
threatened to glow."
Growing up in the Ottawa Valley, ON, Canada, Erin, Heather and Colleen began performing for audiences at a young age. Each sister was filled with an appreciation for music at an early age. Since the age of 4, Erin has been classically trained through the Royal Conservatory of music in piano. Colleen has been studying violin and fiddle methods from all styles around the world since age 9, and Heather, from the age of 11 studied with veteran bass instructors. All the sisters began step dance lessons before the age of 9 and competed at Fiddle and Step Dance Competitions throughout their elementary and high school years.
Never road weary, SEARSON has a relentless tour schedule ahead. "Touring and
performing our original music for live audiences is the best reward we could get
for years of music lessons and practicing." said Erin. "Touring with my sisters
has given us a lifetime of memories that we could never imagine living without."
