Meetinghouse Arts welcomes the Don Roy Trio, joined by The Arnott Siblings, for a performance at 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 7.

The Don Roy Trio features Don Roy on fiddle, Cindy Roy on piano and Jay Young on bass. In addition to being a favorite band on the Maine contra dance scene, the Don Roy Ensemble has played at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, appeared with Garrison Keillor, and performed on two occasions at the Kennedy Center.

The Eastport Art Center described Don Roy this way, “called ‘the quintessential Downeast fiddler’ by Bau Graves, director of the Old Town School of Folk Music, Don Roy has garnered honors beyond counting, including three Individual Artist Fellowships (1994, 2001 and 2008) from the Maine Arts Commission, given for excellence in the pursuit of traditional arts.”

Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and $15 for children. They are available at
