24 Dec 10 Castlebay Music for Maine Family Adventures
Maine’s music derives from several places. Arcadian French, Scottish and English influences have spread over the Maritimes islands, across the farm lands and through the mountains. Sea shanties and Celtic reels, folks songs and modern arrangements of old classics are all part of Maine’s musical history.
Julie Lane and Fred Gosbee of Castlebay Music offer up fantastic renditions of traditional music. Specializing in Celtic harp, guitar, fiddle and tin whistle, this duo has toured New England and the rest of the Eastern United States, as well as though Ireland, England and Scotland playing at festivals and arts centers. Their vocals are clear and charming and to see them play live is a real treat.
Whether flying solo on the way to Maine rafting or Maine snowmobile adventures or heading north for Maine family vacations, for those interested in getting a taste of Maine music on their Maine adventure vacations, checking to see where Castlebay is playing is always a great idea. Visitors lucky enough to be in the Kennebec Valley region on January 9, 2010, can find Castlebay playing an afternoon concert in Augusta.
