Maine fiddler Owen Kennedy is a seventeen-year-old award-winning musician whose love of traditional music and enthusiasm for performing has captivated audiences from San Diego to the Shetland Islands and all over New England. Owen is the 2022 New England Regional Open Scottish Fiddle Champion, the 2021 Junior US National Scottish Fiddle Champion, won the Young Stars of Maine "Glenn Jenks Future in Music" prize from Bay Chamber Music School, and was selected for Best of All Things Irish from the Maine Irish Heritage Center. As an emerging musician rooted in the Maine Maritime tradition and immersed in his growing passion for Scottish music, Owen’s powerful playing can capture the melancholy of a Scottish air, mimic the sound of pipes in a march, or drive a good ol’ New England contradance tune. Stay tuned for news on his first album, Oh When: Now, which will be out late 2022! Updates on Kickstarter!

Alasdair Fraser says:

"What a lovely way to begin – it made me feel so homesick and very comfortable… I’m in familiar surroundings. Owen, it’s just a beautiful recital you gave there. I loved everything about it!"
