2008 Dighton Arts Festival Entertainment

Several musical artists from the area will perform contemporary and traditional folk music throughout the afternoon, led by headliner Michael Troy of Somerset, whose songs have been critically acclaimed. Michael will be accompanied by Barry Brown, a guitarist who is known and respected in his own right.

Sam Ruest, a violinist with the Fall River Symphony and accomplished Celtic fiddler, will perform with guitarist Mike Keshura. Sam and Mike will play music that is steeped in the Celtic tradition. Kara Fortier, one of Sam's most promising students, will play traditional Celtic and Cape Breton fiddle tunes, accompanied on some selections by her brother Alex on piano.

Singer-songwriter Johnny Botelho, whose song, Lincoln Park--a fond remembrance of the bygone Westport amusement park—has become a regional hit on YouTube, will be on hand. He will play songs of his own and host a group of young performers that include Matt Borello, Sarah Borrello, Maria Ventura and Mia Boostrom, all of whom are already well known in local folk music circles. They will play individual sets, and do songs together.

Earlier in the day, the Dighton Rehoboth High School Jazz Band will play a set, the Dighton Middle School flute ensemble will perform, and the fourth graders of the Dighton Elementary School will lead a family folk dance, under the direction of music teacher Brian Michaud.
