Roxbury to host festival of fiddling


Mason Dixon Line is Larry Sliker, Marc Meccia and Jim Kopp. They met more than 35 years ago and have been playing together ever since. Mason Dixon Line was a New Jersey working country rock band until Sliker joined and helped mesh Southern rock, bluegrass, country and blues.

Sliker plays the fiddle, banjo, mandolin and guitar, Meccia is on guitar and mandolin and Stamford local Kopp is on bass and vocals.

The Tremperskill Boys are an old-time string band whose core repertoire comes from fiddle tunes now native to the Catskill Mountains. Their sound could be described as hard-driving northern Appalachian music.

The lead fiddler and the group’s founder, John Jacobson, was born and raised in Delaware County. Joining Jacobson will be Amy Lieberman on bass, Earl Pardini on fiddle, Chris Carey on banjo, Ira MacIntosh on guitar, Carol Mandigo on guitar, John Potocnik on fiddle, and Ginny Scheer playing the flute.

Frontwoman/founder of indie roots-rock band, Daisycutter, Sara Milonovich is a singer, fiddler, composer and bandleader. Her latest CD, "Daisycutter," released in 2009, was a nominated Grammy semifinalist, as was her debut CD, 'Miss Ippy Fiddle', released in 1998.

Greg Anderson is a multi-instrumentalist who co-founded the Celtic-fusion group Whirligig. Currently the guitarist with The Eileen Ivers Band, he has also performed and recorded with many diverse international artists, including Susan McKeown, The Klezmatics, Cathie Ryan and Doctor Nerve.
