Here is the 12 Year Old Fiddler Everyone is Talking About
When you hear Colin Chandler perform, you will have a hard time believing he is only 12 years old. As one of the featured performers at Country Tonite, Colin has consistently amazed audiences with his virtuoso fiddle playing and natural stage presence. After just a few minutes listening to Colin’s blistering fiddling, it is easy to see why many reviewers on TripAdvisor say he was the highlight of our Pigeon Forge show.
Quite a Career
Despite being so young, Colin already has an impressive resume. He has appeared on stage with the legendary Dolly Parton and acted in Dollywood’s exclusive stage show Sha-Kon-O-Hey! Land of Blue Smoke. In 2013, The North American Country Music Association International named Colin the Most Promising Male Instrumentalist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. He has also released two albums on which he sings and plays fiddle.
A Real Renaissance Man
As if being a professional fiddle player and singer wasn’t enough, Colin has a host of other talents. In his spare time Colin clog dances, goes hiking, throws knives, and whittles. Additionally, he loves to read and write, and won the Georgia Young Author’s writing contest twice. It is clear that Colin’s star is only beginning to rise, and we look forward to seeing all the amazing things he will do in the future!
The best place to see Colin perform is at our Pigeon Forge show. Combining incredible dancing, toe tapping music, and hilarious comedy, Country Tonite is repeatedly voted the Best Show in the Smokies. Visit our About page to learn more about our fantastic family entertainment!
