LA CROSSE, Wis. -- Join us as we welcome one of the finest Scottish fiddlers of our time as Bonnie Rideout and her company dazzles Viterbo University audiences with their evocative and unforgettable sound Tuesday, March 15.

 Bonnie Rideout's unique style of fiddling has charmed audiences across the country with a vast array of dance tunes, bagpipe marches, and ancient Gaelic melodies.  Accompanied by a Highland piper and guitarist, Bonnie Rideout is consistently fresh yet remains timeless.

Reflecting the rich musical tradition of her heritage, Bonnie Rideout has become a three-time U.S.-Scottish fiddle champion and has been featured on CBS' Sunday Morning as well as NPR's Performance Today.

The Bonnie Rideout Trio is sponsored by CenturyTel and is supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.

Performance time is 7:30 p.m. in the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.  Tickets are $18.  For more information, contact the Viterbo University Box Office at 608-796-3100
