Concerts & Dances
Showcasing the diversity and talent of today’s traditional performers is a vital component of our mission. Our Concerts feature both established talent and those on their way to a traditional music or dance career. We offer a variety of concerts held year-round in venues across Down East Maine and beyond.
Concerts are offered several times during the year, as well as during the Acadia Trad Festival at the end of June. The Festival offers nightly concerts and dances featuring many of the top performers in the world. Festival concerts feature all faculty, as well as additional performers.
Festival concert schedules for 2020 will be posted in March, with tickets on sale starting April 1.

The musical partnership between Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas spans the full spectrum between intimate chamber music and ecstatic dance energy. Over the last 20 years of creating a buzz at festivals and concert halls across the world, they have truly set the standard for fiddle and cello in traditional music. They continue to thrill audiences internationally with their virtuosic playing, their near-telepathic understanding and the joyful spontaneity and sheer physical presence of their music.
