Internationally Acclaimed Scottish Fiddler to Perform At Owens' Center for Fine and Performing Arts, Nov. 6

Bonnie Rideout One of today's finest and most fiery Scottish fiddlers, Bonnie Rideout will bring the music of the Highlands to Owens Community College as her group the Scottish Trio performs on Saturday, November 6. Rideout's Scottish Trio will appear in the College's Mainstage Theatre at 8 p.m.

"Owens Community College is honored to welcome such a talented and renowned group as Bonnie Rideout's Scottish Trio to the Center for Fine and Performing Arts," said Eric Wallack, Owens Chair of Fine and Performing Arts. "Audiences will delight in the Scottish Trio's gifts of storytelling, mouth-music and song."

From the stages of Scotland's Edinburgh International Festival to America's Kennedy Center, Rideout's unique style of fiddling has charmed audiences throughout the world with a vast array of dance tunes, bagpipe marches and ancient Gaelic melodies. A three-time U.S.- Scottish fiddle champion, her evocative music of the Highlands has landed her appearances on CBS' "Sunday Morning" and several National Public Radio programs, including "Performance Today" and "The Thistle and Shamrock."

Rideout is recognized as the first woman to hold a national Scottish fiddle title and the youngest to have garnered the U.S. championship. In addition, she is the only American to receive the honor of presenting eighteenth-century and Highland fiddle styles at the Edinburgh International Festival.

The internationally acclaimed Scottish fiddler has recorded seven solo albums that reflect the rich musical tradition of her heritage. She also has appeared as a guest musician with many other Celtic groups.

Guest artists for the Owens performance will feature Bryan Aspey on guitar and Matt Bell on percussion.
