The Music Maker

Victor Groulx didn’t just play music, he created it by making exquisite violins and violas. Muriel Groulx, Victor’s wife, generously donated one of each to the Mattawa Museum.  Family, friends, musicians, visitors, celebrated the man and his music on October 5th at the Mattawa Museum.

In an early interview, Victor was asked “What’s the difference between a violin and a fiddle”?  He said, “You carry a violin in a case, you carry your fiddle in a sac”.

From good old down home fiddling, to classical music, Victor’s hand made violins and violas make beautiful music. Musical guests Shorty Sauve, Sandra Glabb, Nancy White, and Tomas Milczarek entertained all attendees with the sound of music.
