Thank you to everyone who turned out to support the student musicians in the 2017 Maine Acoustic Festival! We had a wonderful turnout for the Student Showcase at USM’s Hanaford Hall on Sunday, April 2nd.
And a heartfelt thanks to this year’s coaching team; Hanz Araki (Irish Group) Lauren Rioux (Old-Time Group), Tony Watt and Laura Orshaw (Bluegrass Group), Steve Muise (Franco-American Group), and Brendan Taaffee (Traditional American Harmony Group).
Next year’s festival is scheduled for April 6 -8, 2018. The audition deadline is November 1st, 2018.
Here are a few highlights from MAF 2017.
