June 23, 2017 Concert – Don Roy Trio
$0.00 – $15.00
The Don Roy Trio
Friday, June 23 – 7pm
Franco-American fiddler Don Roy is the aural signature of the Pine Tree State: crisp, straightforward fiddling that is born and bred in Maine’s French Canadian mill towns. Paralleling the Shakers’ tradition of song and dance, Don will perform a variety of mid-19th century folk and fiddle music from the Franco-American communities neighboring the Maine Shaker Villages, at a time when, Elder Joseph composed his song “Simple Gifts.” Don will be joined by pianist/step dancer Cindy Roy and bassist Jay Young; they perform throughout the Eastern States as the Don Roy Trio. Joining the trio are young musicians, the brother and sister fiddling team Rossby and Elsie Arnott from Otisfield.
