Wade Foster

Born and raised in Perth, ON, Wade is known all over the Ottawa Valley and beyond as a multi-instrumentalist and singer. He is most recognized as a versatile fiddle player bringing new sounds into all genres of music, not just traditional fiddle. Wade enjoys performing and writing all styles of music. From country to bluegrass, rock to contemporary, celtic to folk, and everything in between, you will find him enjoying every second. Besides fiddle, Wade also plays acoustic and lead guitar, mandolin, bass, and sings lead and harmony vocals.

Whether Wade is leading the show or accompanying another artist, each performance is fun, inspiring, toe-tapping and tailored to each individual audience.

Wade’s first recordings as a composer can be found on his CD “Sounds Like Home”. It features original instrumental pieces of various styles using the fiddle as the lead instrument. It is available on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify
