13th Annual Fiddle Fest Media Release

Mona Shores Fiddlers Present 13th Annual Fiddle Fest With Peat in the Creel February 21

Norton Shores, Michigan – February 4, 2015

The Mona Shores Fiddlers will entertain their audience with traditional fiddle tunes on Saturday, February 21, beginning at 7 PM at the Mona Shores High School Performing Arts Center. The Fiddle Festival, now in it’s 13th year, has featured The Moxie Strings, Oat Bran Boys, and Finvarra’s Wren. This year, the Fiddlers are excited to invite Peat in the Creel to the stage.

Peat in the Creel are five dynamic musicians from the West Coast of Michigan who individually have been performing at festivals, music venues, pubs, and events all over the MidWest for many years. Collectively, Peat in the Creel creates and performs Celtic music from the heritage-rich regions of Ireland, Scotland, Cape Breton, and Galicia. Peat in the Creel features Toby Bresnahan (vocals, guitar, bouzouki, and mandolin), Mike Mulder (bodhran), Alison Myers (flutes, whistles, and vocals), Regina Kate Cobean (fiddle), and Griffin Cobean (bouzouki, whistles, and small pipes).

The students involved in the Fiddle Festival have a unique opportunity to work closely with Peat in the Creel in an afternoon session prior to the concert. The workshop has been funded by a generous grant from the Walk the Beat Foundation, an organization established to promote music education opportunities to the youth of West Michigan.

The concert will begin with the Mona Shores Middle Fiddles under the direction of middle school director Nick Mosley. The Mona Shores Fiddlers, directed by Kelly De Rose, will then take the stage and prime the audience for guest artists Peat in the Creel. Tickets for the 13th Annual Fiddle Festival are $10 for Adults/$5 for Students and Seniors, and are available at the door. For more information, please call 231-780-4711 x 8327.
