Downright Fiddle-icious

Fiddle-icious—described as "a diverse group of enthusiastic fiddlers and other musicians of all ages and all walks of life"—will be playing three Maine concerts this month:Fiddlers range in age from 11 to 70 years, and hail from 28 Southern Maine towns—Biddeford, Bowdoin, Cape Elizabeth, Coopers Mills, Denmark, Falmouth, Freeport, Georgetown, Gorham, Harpswell, Harrison, Leeds, Lincolnville, Monmouth, Naples, New Gloucester, Poland Spring, Portland, Raymond, Saco, Scarborough, Sebago, South Portland, Topsham, Turner, Westbrook, Windham, and Woolwich.

The group's repertoire "features tunes passed on from our Scottish, Irish, Quebecois, and Acadian ancestors." Since they perform publicly only a few times a year, this will be a rare treat for traditional-music fans.
