Nora Rodes & Owen Kennedy at The MacArthur House

Hilary, Nora and Owen at the MacArthur House on 10/19/19

Nora & Owen performed at The MacArthur House in Marlboro on Saturday night 10/19/19, proceeds benefiting for the Vermont Folklife Center, the culmination of over a year of Nora’s research and learning material collected by Margaret MacArthur (supported by the Flanders Fund), and featuring Owen’s exceptional program of trad fiddle styles including Down East, Maritime, Cape Breton, Scottish, contemporary and more, supported by friend and co-Touring Group member Hilary Menegez.  Video of the finale here: https://www.facebook.com/fiddlerokennedy/videos/513263395921034/

Margaret and John’s house was filled to bursting with several generations of family, friends and neighbors.  Thanks to Megan MacArthur-Littlehales for making these house concerts happen – small scale, intimate, infrequent – a cherished experience for anyone interested in or curious about the MacArthur legacy, seeing and hearing programs in a place of central importance for Vermont folk/trad music and history.  Next concert is Cindy Kallet and Grey Larsen on 11/15/19 (info at mml.wellness@gmail.com).
