100 Years of Fiddling with Donna Hébert & George Wilson

Sunday, December 12 at 2:00 pm EST

George Wilson and Donna Hébert are two extraordinary fiddlers who have trod similar paths over their respective fifty years. Sharing many musical friends and mentors, they love each other’s music and the soul they bring to every tune. When they realized both were celebrating fifty years of fiddling, they decided to do it together at Old Songs. They will take you on a ‘tour de fiddle’ with two of the best fiddlers in folk music.

Joining them on this program are Selma Kaplan, Max Cohen, and Molly Hebert Wilson.
