Louis Schryer: a life of music by Caleb Nickerson

Louis Schryer is an extremely accomplished fiddle player that currently resides in Chichester and teaches at Dr. Wilbert Keon School in Chapeau. He is the only eight-time Canadian Open Fiddling Champion and four-time Canadian Grand Master Champion.

Friedrich Nietzsche, arguably the greatest philosopher of the 19th Century, said that “without music, life would be a mistake.”
Though the sentiment rings true, it is particularly rare for someone in this modern age to devote their life to the study of music, but that’s exactly what Chichester resident Louis Schryer has done.
A dominant force in the Canadian fiddle playing scene, Schryer is the only person to have won the Canadian Open Fiddling Championship eight times and the Canadian Grand Masters four times.
