From Vermont, Pete is one of the country's best fiddlers. Pete now is also a songwriter and song interpreter. His trio includes two excellent players on guitar and mandolin and all three of them sing. Also they add excellent foot percussion, sometimes with two fiddles and feet. Their show combines songs and sets of energetic fiddle tunes. Both an instrumental audio of French-Canadian tunes, and an instrumental video is on site. Their song on this site, "The Floods of 2019," is an updated version of an older song about floods complete with photos of recent flooding around the world.
“…(a) kaleidoscope of sounds and styles with equal parts amiability and energy… crossing genres sometimes within one song or tune set, devising thoughtful, elaborate arrangements, and adding their own compositions, which fit snugly into the mix.” - The Boston Irish Reporter
“These three guys took us into their musical universe; sometimes very energetic, sometimes very poetic and touching. Beauty for the soul.” - - André Marchand, musician, QC, CAN

Opening at 7:00pm: Matt Rolland on fiddle is joined by Freddy Parish on guitar, banjo, and vocals for a night of old-time music and original instrumentals. Matt Rolland from Tucson, Arizona has had a fiddle in his hand since the age of four. Best known as the bandleader and fiddle player for the Tucson-based band, Run Boy Run, Matt has performed at festivals and concert halls across the country, released six studio albums and was twice featured on American Public Media’s popular radio show, “A Prairie Home Companion.” His most recent release includes a co-produced pair of singles with his wife and musical partner, Rebekah Rolland, "Mary / Louise" which are available for streaming online. A talented muli-instrumentalist, Rolland performs original tunes and old-time traditional music on fiddle, mandolin, and acoustic guitar. He is joined by Freddy Parish, a Tucson-based singer/songwriter performing original songs and traditional tunes in a neo-traditional folk and country style. Parish released an EP in 2018 called "Last Chance" of traditional songs and is currently recording a new album of original country inspired songs.
