Owen Kennedy is a fourteen year old fiddler from Maine
whose love of traditional music and enthusiasm for performing has captivated audiences from Cape Breton to San Diego to the Shetland Islands and all over New England.  Whether capturing the jazzy bounce of a Maritime reel, mimicking the sound of pipes in a Scottish march, or driving a good ol' New England contradance tune, Owen's powerful playing, clean articulation, and artistic ornamentation are a delight. 


Though young, Owen is a seasoned performer – kicking off the Boys & Girls Club National Conference in San Diego with an audience of several thousand, to performing solo at the 2019 Shetland Folk Frenzy Big Gig, to playing at numerous local festivals, markets, weddings, and nonprofit events.  He has opened for Pete’s Posse and an Acadia Trad Festival concert in Bar Harbor, and has shared the stage with Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy, The Outside Track, Genticorum, and Andrea Beaton & Troy MacGillivray
