ReStrung's Waterbound Tour 2010
Fiddlers ReStrung Embarks on Waterbound Summer Tour of the Great Lakes

Every summer, Fiddlers ReStrung, a 15-piece string ensemble, embarks on a summer tour that brings their unique blend of American Bluegrass, Celtic fiddle, popular folk, Appalachian Step-dancing, and Progressive Acoustic music to communities and concert halls across the country. This year’s tour is called Waterbound, honoring not only a song on their upcoming CD, but also acknowledging their visit to each of the Great Lakes. From Sunday June 27th through Friday July 9th, ReStrung will perform at 10 venues in Ontario, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan including Goderich (Ontario), the Spring Sunset Music Series at Presque Isle, Ludington (MI) Area Center for the Arts, and the McConnell Arts Center (Worthington, OH). Additionally, ReStrung will also be attending and performing at Christian Howes’ Creative Strings Workshop in suburban Columbus, Ohio, where they will be working with some of the finest artists working on improvisational strings anywhere.

ReStrung consists of students at Saline (MI) High School, all of whom share in producing a unique ensemble truly their own. Working alongside leadership, students craft their own arrangements and help make organizational decisions. This collaborative ownership grants ReStrung an authentic creative edge that is clearly visible from the striking energy they portray on stage. Students are chosen based not only on musical talent, but personal maturity as well. They balance a demanding performance schedule while maintaining high standards in other school activities, sports, and academics. ReStrung prides itself on giving back to the community with its annual December concert in support of the USMC ‘s Toys for Tots program and the summer library program that provides concerts for these institutions with tight budgets. Started in 2009, these library programs not only include great music, but ReStrung members also reach out and engage with the children and families in attendance.
