Saline

Saline /s?'li?n/ is a city in Washtenaw County in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 8,810.

The city is popular for its annual Celtic Festival, which attracts people from all over the United States and its sister cities Brecon, Wales, United Kingdom (established 1966) and Lindenberg, Germany (established 2003). It is also the hometown of the Saline Fiddlers and Fiddlers ReStrung, two nationally renowned high school bluegrass/fiddle groups. Saline, whose well-regarded school district is perhaps its biggest draw, was ranked the 43rd best place to live out of 1,300 rated cities in the United States in a 2005 CNN/Money Magazine poll, 59th in 2007's poll, and 63rd in 2009's CNN/Money Magazine and also made CNN/Money's list of best places to retire in 2005.

Saline is hometown of two fiddle groups. The Fiddlers Philharmonic was formed in 1994 by Saline Music Educator Bob Phillips. Under Phillips's leadership the group quickly gained national prominence as an example of using alternative musical styles to advance music education. Bob retired in 2003 and created a nationally known consultancy to assist music educators. In 2003, the majority of members in the group voted to become an independent nonprofit organization named "Saline Fiddlers". They bill themselves as "America's premier youth fiddling show band". Some parents and students wanted to remain under the school district's auspices and, with the school district's permission, they formed Fiddlers ReStrung. Both groups continue to support the same goals of preserving American fiddling styles, spreading appreciation of this music through performance, modeling the use of alternative music styles in music education and furthering the musical education and social development of students. The groups perform frequently at a wide variety of events and enjoy representing their hometown.
