I'm so excited to share the beautiful Readfield Union Meeting House stage with two of my fiddle heroes, Greg Boardman and Steve Muise! This show raises money to support the ongoing restoration of the Union Meeting House. After the formal restoration program began in 2009, the newly restored meeting house is now being used as its builders intended – as a community gathering space for concerts, talks and visitors. Come out and hear some tunes & enjoy this historic venue!
Tickets are available at the door the night of the event.
Admission is $15.
