Pineland Fiddlers

CENTRAL MAINE FIDDLERS LED BY ELLEN GAWLER:  FROM CAPE BRETON TO THE SHETLAND ISLANDS!!

 










Current Fundraiser:  Poinsettias!  

Also:  listen for tunes at Shaws and Longfellows - we'll be busking throughout December!  



The Pineland Fiddlers, led by Ellen Gawler, travelled to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia June 2015 for a fabulous musical and cultural learning adventure! Students attended workshops with local master fiddlers at the
Celtic Interpretive Music Center and at the Gaelic College of Celtic Arts & Crafts . The Pineland Fiddlers also performed at cèilidhs from Glencoe to Mabu to Inverness. It was an amazing opportunity to visit & participate in a culture with fiddling in its heart and history.

Since then, the Pineland Fiddlers have performed at various venues in Maine, including for dances in Farmington & Bowdoinham, and Colby College's Service of Carols & Lights.



 




Now the Pineland Fiddlers are planning their next big adventure:  The Shetland Islands for Fiddle Frenzy 2019!  

We will be playing gigs, busking, and fundraising to make this trip possible!  If you'd like information about having the Pineland Fiddlers play at your event, or how to support our trip, please contact Christina Kennedy.

Why Shetland?  It's another community with fiddling and traditional tunes at its heart, and the tunes are so fun, with their own special flavor: quirky chords, fast pace, full of playfulness & joy.  Like many traditional tune genres, they reflect the landscape of the islands, with lots of jumping and bounce.  

We will have more information about our trip plans soon, and how you can help us get there!
