Winter WarmUp with ReStrung:
Free Concert in Downtown Saline on Friday Feb. 26.
Maybe we have not been buried with snow like they have out
east, but winter is winter, and we could all use a break. On Friday February 26, Fiddlers ReStrung will
warm up Saline with a free concert in town at the OldMethodistChurchBuilding
(also the former home of the Calico Cat at 117 S. Ann Arbor St. (at the intersection
with Henry Street). The 7:30pm show will feature some of the new
music that ReStrung is working on, as well as some of the old favorites as
well. The show is made possible through
the efforts of the Saline Chamber of Commerce and we hope you come early to
shop, have dinner or a coffee and enjoy a wonderful evening in town.
Enjoy dinner while helping to send ReStrung on their Summer Tour!

Saline, Michigan: On October 21, 2009, the Fiddlers ReStrung were recognized by the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners for their Summer Reading Program for Michigan Libraries. The program, which ran for the first time in 2009, featured an engaging interactive and educational performance format, where ReStrung performers shared stories about their own musical background and the musical selections they perform with the audience. In each concert during this series, the audience was not only invited to ask questions about the songs, the instruments and the group, but some lucky children in the audience were invited up to join ReStrung during the show-ending number, the Orange Blossom Special, each with a percussion instrument.
