Organizers of the 2019 UMFK Fiddlers’ Jamboree have put out a call to area musicians and entertainers to participate in one of the largest jam sessions, which has been held annually on the University of Maine at Fort Kent campus.
The jamboree, which has become a St. John Valley tradition, will be held on Sunday, March 3, 2019, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in UMFK’s Fox Auditorium.
The event brings together talented musicians for an afternoon of impromptu performances. In the past, the jamboree has drawn both performers and audiences from throughout Aroostook County and western New Brunswick.
The jamboree has become very successful and the attendance has grown over the years. In addition to being an event that audience members look forward to each year, the jamboree also is a favorite of the musicians who perform.
Fiddlers, guitarists, other acoustic musicians, and singers are invited and encouraged to take part.
Interested participants are encouraged to contact Susan Tardie at (207) 834-7557 or toll-free at 1-888-879-8635, ext. 7557 or Warren Harvey at (207) 834-3939 before Monday, February 25, 2019.
