Featuring the return of musicians George Wilson, Josh Ward, and Frank Orsini, this concert will bring back fond memories of Hubbard Hall's Fiddle Festival Weekends of old. Join us for dancing, dinner, and a lively concert of traditional tunes. The beginner-friendly Dance will be called by Fern Bradley and will feature square, contra, and circle dances. You'll learn the steps as you go -- just jump in and enjoy the live music performed by Hubbard Hall's June Jam Band, featuring guest fiddler George Wilson! We will break for pizza dinner & potluck at 6:00 pm, then mosey over to the Hall for the 7:30 pm concert.

NOTE: The 6:00 pm Pizza Dinner is open to all, whether you are attending just the Dance, just the Concert, or both! Donations appreciated! 

More about the performers: Drawing on their long history of playing together and their wide ranging musical experience, Wilson, Ward, and Orsini will bring you a mix of tunes from New England, Celtic, Quebecois, and Cape Breton traditions as well as a bit of bluegrass, Uncle Dave Macon, and other surprises. George Wilson’s high energy but nuanced fiddle sound has enlivened dances all across the country and his comic songs to banjo have brought smiles to the faces of audiences for the past half century. Frank Orsini's sweet fiddle and mandolin harmonies and bluegrass rifts have made him a sought after band member for just as long. Josh Ward, when not inventing high precision machining techniques, has been adding his delicate guitar chords to the mix.
