Greg is the founder of Maine Fiddle Camp and has been a major inspiration for many fiddlers over the last three and a half decades throughout all of Maine. He has steered a career in folk music by playing for concerts and dances, especially by learning the regional “DownEast” fiddling style from the likes of Otto Soper and Simon St. Pierre, and by teaching music and fiddling in the Lewiston area.

Call it the luddite in me…  : )
THANK YOU Steve, for all your help with fiddle camp!
