Antoinette Hatfield Hall

Noontime Showcase: Mac Sumner

Portland'5 welcomes fiddler Mac Sumner to the Hatfield Hall rotunda on Monday, November 4, 2019 at 12pm for a free Noontime Showcase performance.

Fiddler, singer, and guitarist Mac Sumner's musical experience reflects a panoply of interest and ability, ranging from singing in classical choirs to playing fiddle and guitar for square dances. On the fiddle, he has studied with masters Sammy Lind and Lisa Ornstein. His singing has taken him everywhere from house concerts to cathedrals.

Introduced to Cape Breton music, he developed an affinity for the Celtic style, eventually spending three months on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada, learning from and performing with the greats. Mac recently returned from a nine-month stay in Galicia, Spain, where he further deepened his knowledge of the Celtic musical world.

Mac's solo performances contain an ever-evolving repertoire of moving North American, Irish, and British ballads, as well as Americana/country songs and Cape Breton fiddle music.
