@ The Royal, Saturday, Dec. 3, 10 p.m.

Behind the unpolished exterior of Daniel Huscroft’s bushy beard and dusty boots lies a masterful musician who cut his teeth on a piano, and picked up his first violin when he was five.

He was schooled in Vivaldi concertos and old time fiddle; by 12 years old he had travelled the continent, competing nationally and performing alongside his musician father and sisters in the ‘Huscroft Family Band.’
