Bangor, ME 04401 United States

The history of American roots music in the early 20th century could never fit into an encyclopedia. it’s too ramshackle, too rambunctious, too radical. Fiddlers, guitarists, banjo players, and all kinds of folks rambled those early roads, learning from each other, inspiring each other, and pushing the music in new directions. Music constantly switched back and forth across the racial divide, beholden only to the beat and the dance. It’s this fevered period of musical exchange that inspires Ben Hunter…

They bring these songs to life in performance with sparse, atmospheric arrangements behind the uncanny blend of their voices in close harmony.

Pre-show donations are no longer being accepted. We may have a couple of standing-room only spots left. Drop on by the show at 58 Main if you're interested! Here’s a fun fact about traditional music: it’s not always old even when it sounds like something lifted straight from a vintage ceilidh. For proof, witness The East Pointers - guitarist Jake Charron, fiddler Tim Chaisson and his cousin, banjoist Koady Chaisson - vocalists all and, in the case of the Chaissons,…

House Concert – Heather Maloney

March 31 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Raised on a record player instead of a TV, Maloney dug deep into per parents’ record collections for entertainment, obsessing over the Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Fleetwood Mac, C.S.N.Y., Bob Dylan, and more. So it’s no surprise that the folk, pop, and rock greats of the 60’s and 70’s found their way into her own music. With those influences as a foundation, and a strong dose of 90’s radio hits, Maloney was forming her sound long before she even wrote a…
