Feature Bands:


Erica Brown & The Bluegrass Connection - ME


 

Erica developed an interest in music at an early age.

At the age of seven, she was competing in fiddle contests with kids twice her age.

At age nine, she was travelling throughout New England, Canada, and even Louisiana with the Maine French Fiddlers.

Erica also performed as a special guest with Mac McHale And The Old-Time Radio Gang for five years.

Currently, she has her own bluegrass band, Erica Brown & The Bluegrass Connection, which performs all over New England.

Erica is also a member of The Stowaways, Darlin’ Corey and The Record Family Band.
 
She has competed in and won numerous fiddle contests throughout New England and Canada. In 2003 she was awarded Junior Female Entertainer Of The Year by the Maine Country Music Association and in 2006 she received the Harold Carter Memorial Award from the Down East Country Music Association. Erica has helped bring music into several elementary schools by holding workshops and personally performing. She has a strong desire to share her knowledge with anyone who has an interest in music and the fiddle. Erica Brown was a recipient of a 2006 Maine Arts Commission Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Award and was recognized as a Master Artist by the Maine Arts Commission that same year.

Her talent for combining the precision of classical music with the spontaneity of country and bluegrass fiddle makes for a fun-filled performance every time she plays.

Performance highlights include opening for Grammy award winning country music superstar Dwight Yoakam, as well as Grammy award winning bluegrass performer Ricky Skaggs
