Fiddlers and other musicians from throughout Aroostook County and western New Brunswick will gather for the area’s largest jam session and house party at the annual Mardi Gras Fiddlers’ Jamboree on Sunday, February 3 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the University of Maine at Fort Kent’s Nowland Hall.
The event is open to the public and admission is free. The doors will open to the public at 12:30 p.m.
“What a wonderful time to see a group of talented musicians, who together are part of creating and sharing the magic of music,” said jamboree chair Warren Harvey.
Harvey has worked to coordinate the call for musical talent for the jamboree while working along with the staff from UMFK.
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.
The jamboree is a great way to see how Valley people would come together for fun and refreshments.
