About this Event

You are invited to a rousing Sunday afternoon featuring a rich combination of fiddle tunes conducted by the entrancing and entertaining Peter Macfarlane! The concert is free with a recommended $15 donation to benefit the Upper Valley youth fiddling program, Fiddle Friends, and also the community non-profit, art center treasure which is the Seven Stars Arts Center.

Peter Macfarlane’s name will be familiar to fans of the longtime Vermont band Atlantic Crossing, for which he has played fiddle, among other instruments, for the last 20 years.

The Vermont Fiddle Orchestra is a community orchestra based in central Vermont, playing traditional and new fiddle and dance tunes from Europe, Scandinavia, the British Isles, Maritime Canada, Quebec, New England, Appalachia and beyond.  Open to musicians of all skill levels and most instruments, we play for the joy of this rich and diverse repertoire. 

Fiddle Friends brings Upper Valley youth together to enjoy learning traditional music. The group will meet monthly on Saturdays for fiddle tune, technique and arrangement workshops. Each 3-month session will feature a local fiddle teacher as the leader. At the end of each 3-month session, students will have the opportunity to perform for friends and family at a concert or dance. Fiddle Friends seeks to inspire Upper Valley Vermont and New Hampshire youth to form new friendships and skills through traditional music and prepare them to join performing ensembles.

Seven Stars Arts Center is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit serving East Central Vermont and beyond. Its mission is "to nurture a love and understanding of the arts through educational and creative opportunities and performances."
