REGION -- New England Celtic Arts, in collaboration with Music New Brunswick will present Samantha Robishaud at Skye Theatre Performing Arts Center in So. Carthage on Wednesday; and at Route 27 Arts in Stratton on Thursday.
Curtain is 7 p.m. at each venue. A jam session at Skye Theatre will start at 6 p.m.
Samantha's passion, desire and drive have led her to achieve incredible success in just a short time. Samantha was featured and performed on the 2010 Vancouver Olympics Opening Ceremony. She was the 2010 East Coast Music Award Winner for "Fans Choice" and composed and performed on the Documentary CD "This Is My America" With Dolly Parton and Mark O'Connor.
Three-time Music NB award winner, Samantha has performed on many prestigious stages and events, standing ovations during 2 week tour of China as a professional soloist with the New Brunswick Youth Symphony Orchestra, represented province of New Brunswick as Tourism Ambassador on U.S. junkets, Celtic Colours Cape Breton, Carnegie Hall, Grand Ole Opry, Wild Horse Saloon in Nashville, the Calgary Stampede new artist stage and youth stage, Klondike days in Edmonton, the nationally broadcast CBC TV East Coast Music Awards show, CBC Acadian World Congress Closing Show, A Musical Maritime Odyssey performing for Queen Elizabeth II during her last Canadian visit in 2002 and for Prince Charles during his visit to Saint John, NB in 2012.
Samantha has always demonstrated a strong love for all styles of fiddle playing: her drive to perfect a unique feel and style has also been influenced through classical training. Samantha has discovered after several years of classical training a deeper understanding of the instrument combined with her already mature natural skills. Samantha is often a guest of many Symphony Orchestras.
Her latest CD “Collected” was released in May 2013 and she will be featuring songs and tunes from the new album on this tour in Maine.
