ERICA BROWN and THE BLUEGRASS CONNECTION

Fiddle prodigy Erica was competing at seven, touring at nine and recording at fifteen, when she made her SRT debut with the Old Time Radio Gang.  Now her own five piece Bluegrass Band is enjoying great popularity and returns for their annual Bluegrass / Country / Folk hoedown!  With Matt Shipman on guitar and vocals, Ken Taylor on bass, Steve Roy on Mandolin and vocals, and Read McNamara on Banjo.  Erica was a recipient of a 2006 Maine Arts Commission Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Award and was recognized as a Master Artist by the Maine Arts Commission that same year.  Her talent for combining the precision of classical music with the spontaneity of country and bluegrass fiddle makes for a fun-filled performance every time she plays.

Performance highlights include opening for Grammy award winning country music superstar Dwight Yoakam, as well as Grammy award winning bluegrass performer Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder.

"For the music of her heritage and her age, there's no one any better." - Don Roy

"One of the best fiddlers in Maine...The kind of musician who gives musicians a good name."  - Darol Anges
