Fiddle music has deep cultural roots
 and is a part of the American Pioneer Experience. When people immigrated to Minnesota, the Fiddle came too!
 As well as a rich heritage of delightful dancing music! Traditionally it was played in farmhouse kitchens, at barn dances and out on the green.

- Excerpt from CHISAGO-ISANTI COUNTY STAR –

When Pierre Jacques Pleau was 5 years old he was walking through a mall with his parents and saw a small violin in a music shop window. They went in to look at it, but it turned out to be a soprano ukulele. He still thought it looked a lot like a violin and, much to his delight, his parents bought it for him.

When they arrived home, Pleau hurried out to the backyard, found a flexible stick and tied a string on it. Then putting the ukulele on his shoulder, he tried playing it with his makeshift bow. Even though it didn’t make very good sound, he didn’t give up on his dream of learning to play a real violin. Three years later he started taking lessons. Thus began his passion for music and the performing arts.

...Pleau went on to write and produce several youth musicals based on historical fiction of the Midwest pioneer experience and his own personal experience of growing up on an 1880’s homestead.

From 2008-2011, Pleau wrote six youth musicals including the music and lyrics. The musicals were performed at North Branch Area High School and included 69 songs and 18 instrumental pieces, several of which he now sings or plays in his music and storytelling performances...
