Fireside Fiddlers - Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 08/24/2017 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Fireside Fiddlers is a group of musicians from northern New Hampshire and the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. At first the group get-togethers were like those kitchen jams many of us have attended, where musicians gathered and played into the wee hours. Today the fiddlers, backed up by bass, banjo and guitar, perform at various locales around the region, including having appeared numerous times at concerts in Colebrook presented by the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts, at Weeks Memorial Library, the Lancaster Farmers' Market, the North Country Moose Festival in Canaan, Vt., Woodspring in Randolph and the Guildhall Cabin Fever Concert Series. The group has recorded three CDs, which will be available for purchase at this concert. The Fireside Fiddlers play dozen of tunes that have echoed through Grange Halls and at barn dances for decades--from "Red Wing" and "Old Joe Clark" to the ever-popular "Tennessee Waltz."  It's old-time fiddling as you remember it!
