Faux and Fiestas Family Concert @ Fifth Maine Museum

Faux and Fiestas Family concert, featuring Tom Faux (guitar); Juan Fiestas (violin); Christine Fiestas (percussion); Robin Kearton (violin); Stella Faux (violin); and Ines Fiestas (trumpet).

The Fauxs and the Fiestas’ are families of musicians and former longtime residents of Peaks Island, now spread across the county. They play an astounding variety of music: haunting northern Peruvian compositions from the Fiestas family, traditional American fiddle music, and other fabulous
music from around the world.

Tom, Juan, and Christine performed for many years with Pacto Andino, a group well-known to southern Mainers. Juan is currently a string teacher and director of orchestras in the Corpus Christi schools. Tom and Robin run a music school in Central Illinois and perform with Robin and the Toad. Robin is a longtime principal string player (viola and violin) with the Champaign-Urbana Symphony. Stella Faux, a Peaks Island native, is now a freelance violinist in Boston. And brass player Ines is the youngest in a long line of Fiestas musicians. She studies and plays in Corpus Christi.
