Pine Tree Flyers Concert
May 10 @ 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm
Pine Tree Flyers Concert @ Fifth Maine Museum

The Pine Tree Flyers will kick off the fourth Summer Series for Peaks House Concerts on Friday, May 10th, at the Fifth Maine Museum starting at 7pm.

Four of the finest voices in New England’s traditional music scene shine a renewed light on the tunes of the Northeast with excitement and respect. From festival stages and concert halls to raucous August nights at fiddle camp, the Flyers are here to make sure New England music has a seat at the table as a distinct and vital American tradition.

All of the members of the Pine Tree Flyers are residents of Portland, Maine, Katie McNally (fiddle), Emily Troll (accordion), Owen Marshall (guitar), and Neil Pearlman (piano). They cut their teeth playing for contra dances and learning from the greats. Individually, they’ve toured the world playing Irish, Scottish, and Quebecois music and they bring this wellspring of knowledge and technical prowess to the American music that was born from these traditions.

Support the Fifth Maine Museum and enjoy world class music performed right here on Peaks Island.
