The lauded Canadian production Bowfire sets American stages ablaze with its electrifying display of fiddle and violin virtuosity. The show spotlights a cast of string musicians who dip into varied musical genres as if they were sampling salsas after spinning in an office chair. As colorful lights soak the stage, violinists bow notes that strike classical chords, jazzy pitches, and bluegrass harmonies. A full band of backup musicians lays down bass lines and percussion, erecting a wall of complete, robust sound.

Each routine is quick and fast-paced, bursting with the energy and enthusiasm of a first-year teacher or a 10-fingered shark feeder. As the show incorporates so many musical styles, listeners are bound to enjoy most, if not all, the pieces. In a 2008 interview with the Globe and Mail, creator and artistic director Lenny Solomon said, "[The show's] like the weather in Hawaii: If you don't like something, wait five minutes and it will change."
