The Vienna Union Hall plans to host the Gawler Family Band at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 11, at 5 Vienna Mountain Road.
The Gawlers are a fiddling family band from the heart of Maine. John and Ellen Gawler are master fiddle and banjo players and their three daughters Molly, Edith and Elsie grew up with the music and formed a band of their own. The Gawler Sisters. The band includes “brother” Bennett Konesni and Ethan Tischler.
Inspired by years of playing for dances in the old Grange halls, the Gawlers may be best known for their rollicking renditions of dance tunes with its origins in the Scots-Irish and French Canadian traditions.
