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 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.
