AUGUSTA — Erica Brown and The Bluegrass Connection will perform at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 15, at University of Maine Augusta, Jewett Auditorium.

The event is part of the Concerts at Jewett Series sponsored by University of Maine at Augusta College of Arts and Sciences and UMA Senior College.

Brown has been playing the fiddle since the age of seven and touring since she was nine. She credits her grandfather, who played accordion and harmonica, for her passion for music.

She combines her classical training on the violin with the spontaneity of country and bluegrass fiddle for a fun-filled performance.

The Bluegrass Connection is composed of Steve Roy, Matt Shipman, Ken Taylor, and Read McNamara playing guitar, bass, mandolin and banjo, with Erica Brown on fiddle.

Tickets cost $10 for adults, $5 for students and is free for children 12 and younger.

Tickets are available at Pat’s Pizza in Augusta, Dave’s Appliance in Winthrop and at the door.
