WINTHROP — Young Maine fiddler Owen Kennedy will perform Fiddle Favorites: Folk Tunes from Near & Far at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 8, at Winthrop United Methodist Church, 58 Main St.

The family-friendly show is a lively musical voyage from Maine and New England to Cape Breton and Quebec, then to Scotland, Ireland, and beyond.

Snacks and an open jam session will follow the show, so attendees are invited to bring an instrument.

Kennedy has played at the Waterville Opera House, the Celtic Celebration, the Maine Highland Games, the Monmouth Fair, the Franco Center in Lewiston and the East Benton Fiddle Convention.

Kennedy plays in ensembles, including Pineland Fiddlers, the Maine Folque Co-op and the NE Celtic Arts jam sessions. He has performed with traditional musicians including Ellen Gawler, Greg Boardman, Alasdair Fraser, The Outside Track and Lisa Ornstein.

Kennedy is raising money to attend Maine Fiddle Camp and New England Suzuki Institute this summer. In addition, 10 percent of the show’s proceeds will go toward the church Youth Group’s Heifer Project outreach mission.

Suggested minimum donations of $3 per person or $10 per family are appreciated.
