Pesaturo will be in concert Saturday, Feb. 16, at Cumberland's Blackstone River Theatre along with friend Mari Black who is Scotland's Glenfiddich Fiddle Champion and a two-time U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion. The concert is at 8 p.m. and res- ervations can be made by calling 401-725-9272. Find the video of his appearance at angeles-vs-providence-regions-of- rams-and-patriots-face-off .
