Senior Programs

Making People Happy, One Senior Center at a Time

Offering a variety of one-hour music and story presentations featuring the world of fiddle music.

Fiddler/violinist, Frank Ferrel is widely regarded as a leading authority on North American traditional fiddle music. He is considered to be one of the leading American fiddlers performing today. Frank made numerous appearances on the nationally broadcast American radio series, A Prairie Home Companion, and is included on their anthology recording, PHC Tourists. He has performed with the legendary Celtic group, The Boys of the Lough, both as guest artist on their Scottish Highlands and Islands tours, as well as being a featured performer in numerous festival and concert performances throughout North America. His major label CD release, Yankee Dreams, was chosen by the Library of Congress for inclusion in their Select List of 25 Recordings of American Folk Music. Most recently he was featured on the cover of Fiddler Magazine. In 2017 Frank was inducted into the North American Fiddler’s Hall of Fame. Scott Alarik of the Boston Globe writing about Frank called him, “One of the finest masters of the genre.”

My solo performances are adapted for all levels of senior care from independent living to memory care.

Length of programs is typically 1-hour, but can vary depending on your needs.
