Bar Harbor, Maine is a few hours drive from Boston. This summer the 2 ladies ventured there for our summer fiddle fix. We attended the first ever Acadia Traditional School of Music and Art, held on the campus of College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor. Lessons from masters of fiddle Richard Forest, Michael Doucette, Troy MacGillivray, and Pascal Miousse were accompanied by the wonderful Maine landscape.
Did I mention we were treated to an evening harbor cruise?
Next year, the school will offer a mix of Irish, Old-Time, and Acadian teaching.
