Each summer we perform several times at a resort on the Maine Coast called The Rock Gardens Inn. We do a mixture of songs and tunes, and teach contradancing to the guests. This is a video of T-Acadie with Bill Olson calling a silly and fun Quebecois dance called "Une, Deux, Trois, Poussez!"
Dwain Wilder is heir to the famous "Sunhearth" dulcimer business, and rightly so. His dulcimers are true works of art. I have played my "Swan" for many years with great joy. It is at it's best as a solo instrument with a well-rounded but still sweet - almost shimmery - voice.
Fiddle-icious grew out of a monthly session Don Roy was leading in Portland, Maine. Today there are close to 100 members - fiddles, accordions, guitars and a smattering of other instruments. I'm honored that they've played my tunes and that I'm involved with them. All levels of ability are welcome, check it out!
Greg is my bandmate in Scrod Pudding, and, in my humble opinion, one of the best kept secrets of the Maine traditional music scene. He's an awesome hammered dulcimer player and teacher, and one heck of a nice guy!
Jeremy made the cherry and butternut dulcimer featured on 'The Trestle Bridge' and pictured on this web site. His instruments are well-balanced and sweet sounding, but can still cut through a mixture of other instruments (including accordion) to be heard as the lead voice. I have other dulcimers that I love, but this is my main instrument.
