Who we Are

Performing together since 2014
Fiddle Big Fiddle started playing together in 2014 when Nils and Julia met while teaching at Wentworth music. What started out as performing at weddings and special events in the summer quickly turned into regular performances in the Okanagan Valley. They’ve worked with local artists, musicians, and videographers, as well as formed relationships with different business owners and community members involved in the arts and arts organizations. Fiddle Big Fiddle took their name from their love of fiddle, folk, and jazz music.

"Julia, Nils & Lauren were a brilliant addition to our wedding. In addition to being professional and well prepared, their music was thoroughly enjoyed by all guests and set a beautiful ambiance to the room. They played songs I had specifically requested outside of their normal repertoire and made themselves available prior to the wedding to review set up and timing. I would not hesitate to hire them again or recommend them. Excellent musicians!" - June 2015

~ Breanne & Jeremy Gackle

"Working with Nils was truly a dream. He brought beauty and a new magic to our song in a way that is impossible to describe. His playing of our song brought both of us to tears that day. Nils' love for his work is evident in every note." - Dec 2016.
