The sixth and final concert in the Chester Music Series features the Terrible Mountain Stringband, which fuses original, contemporary, and  traditional material, bringing heartfelt new life and relevance to the chain of American folk music.

Third generation fiddle players Ida Mae and Lila Specker were born in a one-room cabin at the foot of Terrible Mountain in Andover and learned to play the fiddle from their father, John Specker.

Together with Josh Norman on guitar, vocals and percussion, Lila and Ida Mae formed Terrible Mountain Stringband in 2017. They are joined by William Seeders Mosheim on banjo. Carrying on the legacy of their forebearers, the band pays homage to the past while  continuously evolving their unique sound

Bring a blanket, a chair, some refreshments and enjoy. Rain space is at the American Legion on Route 103 South.
