STEPHANIE CADMAN has joined on with Carlos Nuñez and his band for the current tour that will bring them to Denver March 2nd (www.SoiledDove.com). “I'm thrilled to join Carlos Nuñez on his next US/Canada tour!” said Stephanie in a note to her fans, “ I've been listening to him for years and have enjoyed learning all his music so much. I'll be adding a few of my original fiddle tunes to the show and also some tunes heard from my Canadian hometown region- the Ottawa Valley. I'm also so excited to dance with him, I'll be adding my percussive step dancing to some of the sets of tunes!
After winning the world tap dancing championships in Riesa Germany at 16, Stephanie was chosen for the lead in the hit musical 'Swingstep', combining her skills as actor, dancer, singer and fiddler.
She then went on to perform in the Mirvish Productions Celtic review ‘Needfire’, and the Broadway National Tour of ’42nd Street’. She is a founding member of the hit dance show ‘The StepCrew’, and is also one of Canada’s top violinists featured in the production of ‘Bowfire’. She is also a member of CMT’s super group Belle Starr.
Nominated for a 2013 Canadian Folk Music Award, her album “Foggy New Year” features several original tracks with some of Stephanie’s old favourites thrown in the mix. Cadman is able to convey the subtleties of the traditional music while introducing the listener to her innovative original tunes. The album also showcases Stephanie’s soothing, heartfelt vocals on four tracks such as John Douglas’ “Wild Mountainside” and features a fun duet with producer Daniel Lapp on Robert Burns’ “Thou Hast Left me Ever Jamie”.
As a dancer Stephanie is accomplished in tap, Celtic stepdancing, ballet and jazz. She has appeared as a dance soloist and fiddler with Symphonies all over North America including the Kennedy Center’s National Symphony orchestra. She was the top female at the World Tap Dance Championships in Germany at age 16. She also holds three stepdancing titles at the prestigious Pembroke Championships.
