Concerts for a Cause is proud to host Scott Ainslie on Friday, March 2, at 7:30pm. at the First Universalist Church of Auburn. This show benefits the church, as well as The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society.

Scott Ainslie is a masterful historian, storyteller, and musician who explores the African and European roots of American music and culture. He has studied with elder musicians on both sides of the color line – in the Old-Time Southern Appalachian fiddle and banjo traditions, as well as Black Gospel and Blues. He plays this music with affection, authority, and power.

Armed with a variety of instruments – vintage guitars, a fretless gourd banjo, a one-string, homemade “diddley bow” (aka cigar box guitar) and personal anecdotes of his encounters with senior musicians across the South – Ainslie brings the history, roots music, and sounds of America alive.
