Owen Kennedy is a sixteen year old fiddler from Maine whose love of traditional music & enthusiasm for performing has captivated audiences from Cape Breton to San Diego to the Shetland Islands and all over New England. In 2021, Owen's musicality and commitment to traditional music have been recognized by several awards - most recently he won the Junior US National Fiddle Champion title and the Young Stars of Maine "Glenn Jenks Future in Music" prize from Bay Chamber Music School. 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.
