Old Grey Goose to Perform at Fellowship Showcase

Old Grey Goose will be guest perfomers at the 2010 Artist Fellowship Award Showcase. Old Grey Goose, an American folk music and dance band hailing from Albion Maine, will take the stage on Friday, October 23rd 2009, during the 21st annual Artist Fellowship showcase (as seen in the press), starting at 6:30 PM at the Strand Theatre in Rockland.

The members of Old Grey Goose are well known in the Maine Arts community, and world wide. Doug Prostik was a former traditional arts master, recognized by the Maine Arts Commission in 2007. Doug plays the fiddle, piano and accordion. Jeff “Smokey” McKeen, a former commission member of the Maine Arts Commission, helped to promote a more prevalent traditional arts community here in Maine. Jeff plays the accordion, guitar and “The Bones”. Carter Newell, an accomplished fiddle player and marine biologist, completes this trio of musicians. The aquaculturalist, Carter, spends his time, when not raising oysters, by playing downeast style with his Old Grey Goose compatriots.

Old Grey Goose has enjoyed world wide notoriety, performing in Poland, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and Kyrgyzstan among others. Their message is one of respect and harmony through the sharing of cultural music. The band will provide a sampling of the traditional American Folk music they love and have had the honor of sharing on a global scale. Ours will be the benefit of listening to such enthusiastically performed and meaningful music.
