Pam will be the featured artist, performing Blackberry Winter (Connie Ellison) for mountain dulcimer and string orchestra. There will be 2 other pieces as part of the program, a word premier by Jessica Meyer, and the Firebird Suite by Igor Stravinsky.
In-person tickets are $15-$40; on-line streaming ($40) is available for 2 weeks after the concert.
It's Tuesday, and it's Mardi Gras! In place of our usual Mini-concert/Jam session we (T-Acadie) are offering a Cajun music concert/session with our friend Mitch Reed. Originally from Scott, LA, Mitch has played with many Cajun bands, including Charivari and Beausoleil. Mitch moved to Maine a few years ago, and we are thrilled that he can join us for Mardi Gras!
You can join us by going to Pam's FB page (www.facebook.com/pam.weeks.73). If you don't see the video right away, scroll down to the news feed and it should be the top post.
NOTE THE TIME CHANGE! We usually start our jams earlier, but to accommodate Mitch's schedule on Tuesday we are starting later and will be streaming from 317 Community Music Center in Yarmouth, Maine.
All sessions are free, but tips are very much appreciated. Tipjar: Venmo @fiddlerpam (phone -7296) paypal.me/whippoorwillmusic or reach out to Pam at firstname.lastname@example.org
- My Bands:
- This is my most active and versatile band - folk trio, Cajun and contradance band!
- 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!"
- T-Acadie at the Guiding Star Grange
- Here's a video from when we played the Greenfield, MA contradance several years ago. You can actually see the band in this one!
- For more videos check our T-Acadie website!
- T-Acadie EPK
- Jimmyjo & the Jumbol'Ayuhs
- Maine's premier Cajun dance band!
- Scrod Pudding
- Scrod Pudding no longer headlines at the Bowdoinham Town Hall dance series, but we are still available for public and private
- events. There's nothing like the "big band" sound!
- A Few Friends:
- Bear Meadow Dulcimers
- 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.
- Bill Olson
- the musings of and info about my partner and contradance caller/composer extrordinaire, Bill Olson.
- Don Roy
- Don is a wonderful Franco-Maine fiddler, a fine violin maker, the leader of Fiddle-icious!, and a good friend.
- 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 Anderson's Music Page
- 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 Seeger Dulcimers
- 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.
