CHESTERVILLE — Mt Blue High School’s student ensemble, The Franklin County Fiddlers, will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, at the Chesterville Center Union Meeting House.

The Fiddlers have agreed to donate their time and talent to help raise funds for bell tower repairs to the 1851 Meeting House at 3 Borough Road. Admission is by donation and all proceeds from the concert will be applied to the bell tower repair effort. Repairs are planned for 2019 and will include reinforcement of the queen post truss which supports the tower, replacement of the roofing on both tiers of the tower, and installation of new supports under the bell. 

The Franklin County Fiddlers have enchanted audiences in Maine and beyond since the group’s creation in 1993 by Mt. Blue Regional School District music educator Steve Muise. Over a time span of 25 years, the group has created its own unique legacy, a legacy that includes not just brilliant musicianship, but also travel and outreach across local and international borders and participation in a wide range of community events. 

Experience the Fiddlers’ magic and repertoire of traditional tunes spanning multiple genres including Canadian Maritime, Celtic, Quebecois and American Old Time. The Meeting House is ADA accessible and refreshments will be served.
