Fiddling for the Land Trust

Jul 30, 2013
Fiddlers Tom Judge and Susan Groce will play Celtic tunes during a summer evening Revelry for the River event.

Tenants Harbor — Two of the finest fiddlers in the Midcoast area, Tom Judge and Susan Groce, will provide an evening of Celtic music at a historic home as part of the Georges River Land Trust’s 2013 Revelry for the River Saturday, Aug. 10. Participants will gather at the 1848 Sail Loft home of Betsy and Al Scott for music, refreshments and a great view of the beautiful harbor, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Judge is Executive Director of LifeFlight Maine, and Groce is Professor of Art and Department Chairwoman at the University of Maine, Orono. Together, they make splendid music that has been enjoyed in the area for many years.

The event is limited to 20 participants; call the Land Trust at 594-5166 to register. The ticket price is $60, $50 for GRLT members.

Revelry for the River is a continuing series of activities celebrating the resources of the St. George River watershed and surrounding areas. The river, history, food and friends will converge Saturday, Sept. 7, for an enactment of Ben Ames Williams’ historical novel “Come Spring” on the river in Warren.

Organized in 1987, Georges River Land Trust is committed to protecting the ecosystems and traditional heritage of the Georges River watershed, which extends from Montville in the north to Port Clyde and Cushing in the south and includes streams, ponds, lakes, wetlands, farms, hills, mountains, blueberry barrens and forest, as well as a rich tidal estuary of salt marsh, clam flats and productive fishing grounds. For more information, call 594-5166; email info@grlt.org; or visit georgesriver.org.
