The Saline Fiddlers Philharmonic, with support from presenting sponsor Norhtstar Bank, are excited to announce they will play at The Ark in Ann Arbor on Sunday, October 14 at 7:30pm (doors open at 7:00). The Fiddlers are especially pleased to announce they will be joined by special guest performing artist Brad Phillips!  Phillips and the Saline Fiddlers will perform their own separate sets along with some joint tunes. Tickets are $15 (general admission) and $22 (reserved) and can be purchased:

  • Online at The Ark’s website
  • In person at the Michigan Union box office or The Ark's box office
  • At the door

The Saline Fiddlers have just completed a 20-show summer schedule that included performances in front of large, enthusiastic crowds at some of the best outdoor music festivals throughout the states of Michigan and Ohio.  The Fiddlers now look forward to bringing their energetic mix of folk, bluegrass, and Celtic fiddle back to the Ann Arbor area and are thrilled to share the stage with the exceptionally talented and well-traveled Saline Fiddler alum Brad Phillips.

Phillips has gained notoriety as a multi-instrumentalist around the country.  Holding both bachelors and masters degrees from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance, Brad’s work as a fiddler, violinist, mandolinist, guitarist, arranger, composer, producer, and teacher have made him one of the area’s most sought-after acoustic musicians. He has appeared with the likes of Jeff Daniels, The Verve Pipe, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Joshua Davis, The Elders, Mark O'Connor, and toured for 10 years with Celtic super-group Millish.  For a video taste of Brad performing live, click here.
 
Phillips got his start performing as a Saline Fiddler during his high school years in Saline and later served as the Assistant Artistic Director, and Artistic Director for the group.
