United States Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) has added her voice to the chorus of elected officials saluting The Saline Fiddlers Philharmonic who are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. Sen. Stabenow – the first woman from the State of Michigan elected to the U.S. Senate and musician herself – has signed a Certificate of Congressional Recognition for The Fiddlers for “providing 25 years of music education and performances of traditional American folk and fiddle music.”
First elected to the Senate in 2000, Sen. Stabenow sings and plays both the piano and the guitar. She grew up performing with her family in church and at many community functions. Her recognition of the Fiddlers’ unique history joins official proclamations from Saline Mayor Brian Marl, the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners and Michigan Sen. Jeff Irwin.
Sen. Irwin will salute The Fiddlers in person Saturday night at The Fiddler’s Annual Hometown Show, featuring 2019 Grammy nominee and Fiddler alumnus Jeremy Kittel. The concert, at Saline High School’s Ellen Ewing Auditorium, begins at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are available at Eventbrite and at the door.
