Andrew "Finn the Fiddler ? Magill performed for FSGW last year with Glasgow guitarist Paul McKenna and returns with African folk fusion artist Peter Mawanga. Finn has recorded three solo CDs and has taught fiddle at Common Ground on the Hill, the Swannanoa Gathering, and other music camps from Alaska to France. Peter Mawanga, son of a Malawian missionary, grew up in war-torn Zimbabwe singing from early childhood. After a career as an Afropop recording artist under the name Peter Pine, he recorded the album Zanga Zo Zama with Malawian musical sensibilities, modern instruments, and lyrics in the Chichewa language by poet Q Malewezi. Since 2004, he has worked with Unicef and Plan International to teach music to orphans and other vulnerable children in Malawi. Finn writes: "Enabled by a Fulbright-mtvU Fellowship in 2010, I co-wrote and co-produced Mau a Malawi: Stories of AIDS about the human story of AIDS in Malawi, Africa with Malawian music icon Peter Mawanga. ?
