    Here in Maine, I’m collaborating with a local community music center and a local concert promoter to put on the first-ever “Maine Acoustic Festival”, a statewide acoustic music festival for middle school and high school students. Following the same model as all-state festivals, students from around Maine have auditioned for Bluegrass, Irish, Franco-Acadian, Singer-Songwriter, and Old-Time Music, and the students who were selected will spend three days together rehearsing and then performing. Every ensemble will have a coach, and we’re bringing in Tony Trischka, a nationally-known banjo player, as a guest artist. I welcome ideas, thoughts, and questions!
