Halligan, Tredwell play Belfast Farmers' Market

Sep 21, 2012
Frets Halligan and Vic Tredwell

Belfast — On Friday, Sept. 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Belfast Farmers' Market will take place at Waterfall Arts, 256 High St. Musical entertainment will be provided by Frets Halligan and Vic Tredwell, who will combine the ukulele and bass with some vocals thrown in for good measure.

Halligan has been a musician since his youth and keeps opening new doors to keep playing and teaching. He loves the ukulele and does all he can to get others playing it. He is known for his laid-back, spontaneous style that invites others to join in, and he always has a few loaner ukes for people to try.

Tredwell is your basic aging hippie, with many previous incarnations. He went to high school in Orono and was the Maine mile champion two years running. He was a quartermaster in the Navy, a wannabee writer in college, then a fortuneteller, a computer wizard, a furniture mover and a farmhand. Along the way he played bass in many styles from blues and rock to western swing to the Belfast Bay Fiddlers.

The Market's final Main Street Festival of 2012 will take place on upper Main Street between Church and High streets the first Friday in October (Oct. 5). For a list of this season's 26 vendors, visit belfastfarmersmarket.org.
