August 2023 highlights

In addition to a performances at nursing homes and assisted living facilities, farmers’ markets, and churches, I’m delighted to have several historical society gigs this month:

  • Sat., Aug. 19 – Vintage Grange Songs at Tranquility Grange, 2177 Belfast Road, Lincolnville, ME. Organized in collaboration with the Linconville Historical Society, this evening of “Sweet, Savory, and Song” features light food at 6 PM and music at 7 PM; $15 for adults; under 4 and over 90 get in free. Read all about it!  Tranquiility Grange has risen from the ashes repeatedly after catastrophic fires. I count it a privilege to play at such a visible testimony to community resilience!
