Being Grand North America and BC champions, winning and performing from west coast to east coast in North America, this young music and dance group had been featured on CBC radio and in many local newspapers. They are young but their expertise in old time and traditional music make them one of the top and most popular music group. In 2008, They became a "Face of Abbotsford", whose face castings are displayed in Abbitsford Art and Culture Centet (CCMA) to represent Abbotsford art and culture. In 2007, They had been chosen from about 400 string players to represent the Vancouver Youth Symphony to play in a celtic event. Both of these young fiddlers are classical violin prodigies, they also play piano and Lia is an accomplished cellist. They also compose their own music since they were 7. From Celtic, country, jazz and classical music to step dance, Kai and Lia have been performing as the Fiddlin Frenzy(aka Old Time Fiddle Kids) for a few years now. They are invited to distribute their talent to many festivals and gathering and are always a hit. Venues that they played repeatedly including Northwest Folklife, Seattle WA, HSBC Childrun and Miracle Weekend for BC Children Hospital, Rick Hansen Wheels in Motion, Kids'' Help Phone, Spirit of Sea Festival, Langley International Festival, Cranberry Festival, Organic Island Festival, Steveston Salmon Festival, Port Alberni Salmon Festival, Berry Beat Festival, Nibbles and Bites Festival, Agrifair, Abbotsford Farmers Market, Abbotsford City Plan A, Canada Day parade float live performer celebration, Lantern Festival, Spirit of BC day, MSA Museum Family Fun Day, BC Agriculture Gala Country Fair Coffee and BC Poultry Bus Tour events and several Chinese fuction. To them playing fiddle is a break from learning classical. Both started learning classical music at age 4 but soon discovered the fiddle and start tp perform at 5. They are scholarship winners and were judges of North Poplar Idol. Kai and Lia have taken lessons from teachers like fiddle master Calvin Vollrath, Keith Wilson, Canada''s fiddler of the year- Mike Sanyshyn, Canadian Grand Master winner''s Mark Sullivan and Patti Lamoureux, and the Sabir Sisters. They have won many BC provincial and North American Fiddle contests. Some of the adjudicators praise them as the “musical kids”.
Kai & Lia are active members of the Central Fraser Valley Fiddlers. So far they are the two youngest members of the club. On the other hand, Kai started to play classical in the Youth Symphony at age 7. Lia also joined the Symphony to play violin and cello at same age. She had just learned to play cello less than a year when she was accepted. Lia likes to play jazz and other type of music on her cello and other instruments too. And she likes her instruments so much that she called them her babies.
