Wicked Good Fiddling!

Wicked Good Fiddling! focuses on Maine’s fiddling heritage. 

Visitors to the exhibition can expect to find imagery and information illustrating fiddling in Maine over two centuries, shown through photographs, tune books, musical recordings and of course fiddles themselves! Interactives will include family accessible programs and activities to do while exploring the exhibition. Curator Paul Wells will present a talk on his upcoming book of Maine fiddle tunes during the exhibit’s run.

Coming up on April 17, 2024, at 7:30pm, a concert to feature two Maine groups, the Pine Tree Flyers and NEA National Heritage Fellows Don & Cindy Roy will showcase the rich, living traditions of Maine fiddling. The Flyers are a relatively new quartet of well-seasoned musicians who put a fresh, contemporary spin on traditional New England dance music. Don & Cindy Roy have long been the leading exponents of Maine’s Franco-American musical heritage. Don’s virtuoso fiddling and Cindy’s steady, rhythmic piano accompaniment, plus her top-notch step-dancing, have delighted audiences at festivals and concerts nationwide.
