Fiddlers ReStrung to Tour East Coast on “Colony Coast Tour” June 26 – July 6

 

Saline, June 20, 2011. Saline’s Fiddlers ReStrung will be “getting on the bus” with all their gear, musical instruments and personal effects to take their high-energy entertainment on their annual summer tour Sunday, June 26. This year’s tour is booked as the “Colony Cost Tour” and will take the group to the historic roots of the U.S. republic in Philadelphia, New York City, Connecticut and Boston. Before returning home on July 6, the group will make a stop in Pittsburgh for a tour of Carnegie Mellon University and a noon performance on campus there.

Highlights of this year’s tour include a rehearsal audit with the Boston Pops Orchestra on July 3 as the symphony prepares for its annual July Fourth concert in the city called “The Cradle of Liberty.” Fiddlers ReStrung members will also attend a workshop with renowned Irish fiddler, Sheila Falls, while in Boston that day. Falls is active as both a performer and recording artist and a member of the fiddle-based band called “Childsplay.” She is also a member of “Classical Tangent”; a Boston Symphony based group which performs in a variety of World Music genres

The tour includes performances in a variety of venues in Philadelphia, Madison, CT, Pittsburgh and West Mifflin, PA, among other locations along the tour. Downtime activities include a Philadelphia Tour Day, New York City Tour Day, Boston Tour Day, beach park and amusement park fun and fireworks in State College, PA on July 4th.

Fans of Fiddlers ReStrung can follow the tour by visiting the group’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ReStrung.
