Pierre, Daniel and Louis Schryer were born in 1968 in the Sault. Their family is of French Canadian descent and making music together was an important part of their growing up. Their parents, Julien and Juliette were fans of traditional fiddling, and the Schryer home was the scene of countless musical sessions. These were often centered around the triplet's older brother Raymond, one of Ontario's finest fiddlers. At the age of eight, the brothers took up the bow and followed in his footsteps. Their sister Julie's solid piano accompaniment added to the group and they began competing in fiddle competitions and moved on to performing as invited guests on national television and radio. Recording: "Pierre, Daniel, Louis: The Schryer Triplets" (1982) with Julie Schryer (piano), Kim Brandt (bass), Ron Dann (pedal steel), Claude Desjardins (drums). "This is a fiddle album bursting with the kind of playing that has kept the tradition alive-full of fire and full of fun." Album liner includes-"Special thanks to our mom and dad who devoted so much time and encouragement to our growth in traditional music, and without whom this record would not have been possible. Also many thanks to Raymond for his help in putting this album together especially for his influence in the development of our repertoire, and to Brian Pickell for really getting things rolling."
