Described as a "passionate and masterful player who values tradition" Gus La Casse is exploring the future of fiddle music. His repertoire reflects his innovative spirit and dedication to the Cape Breton and Acadian fiddle traditions, playing both standards of the genre and original material.

Based in Downeast Maine, Gus maintains an active performance schedule as a solo artist. Cayla Miller, Events Coordinator at the Camden Public Library says, "I've never seen anyone play the fiddle like Gus. He's on fire. I guarantee you'll be grinning, stomping, whooping, and dancing along! Don't miss this!!"

Gus' music has also taken him beyond Maine. He was the 2014 student in residence at The Acadia School of Traditional Music, appearing on the Canadian international television broadcast from the Congrès Mondial Acadien 2014. He traveled to Ireland as part of the Young Tradition Vermont touring group in 2016, and has enjoyed playing the legendary Club Passim in Cambridge, MA. In 2018 Gus was a featured performer at the American Folk Festival in Bangor, Maine.

Gus is off to college in the fall, making this his farewell tour of the midcoast region! Don't miss him!
