George trained classically as a youngster then started his fiddling voyage in the late 1970’s, learning tunes from lobsterman & folk fiddler Albert Collins of South Blue Hill. He was a founding member of Oakum Bay String Band (1981-2011), the long-time host band for the monthly Blue Hill dance, which had a remarkable 34 year run (1976-2010). In addition to playing and teaching the fiddle tunes of Maine, Appalachia and the Canadian Maritimes, George has a strong interest in Irish traditional music. Since 1988 he has been a host of “New Potatoes”, the weekly Celtic show on WERU-FM, where he can be heard on Sundays from 4-6pm. He is also a member of The Montville Project www.montvilleproject.com, a repertory dance band conceived in 2007 at Maine Fiddle Camp. Contact: www.georgefowlerfiddle.com
