7/5 - HOP IN THE HAT

  • Folk Rock/Pop Rock, "Maine musical duo with a surprisingly big sound!" #hopinthehat

  • Hop In The Hat is powered by the duo, Megan & Paul. A couple that has been together for 20+ years, they’ve only begun playing music together in the last four. Their songs can be described as a juxtaposition of simple and complex, with a lyric-centric core. Lyrics and melody drive the simple chord structure behind most of their songs. Songwriters that sowed the seeds of creativity include: David Byrne, Kurt Cobain, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Thom Yorke, Tom Waits, among many other favorites. Their musical thrust consists of acoustic guitar and ukulele, but you’ll also hear mandolin, bass, harmonica, all kids of percussion, keyboard, kazoo, and even some spoons in the mix. Hop In The Hat’s self-released EP, Close Cover Before Striking, was mixed and mastered by Paul in their home studio. Hop In The Hat can be listened to and purchased at Apple Music, ITunes, Spotify, Soundcloud, & Bandcamp. You can watch them play on Youtube and Facebook.

7/12 - RURal electric

  • Working stiffs by day, individually toiling to keep their respective Waldo County-based businesses afloat, Alan Gibson, Andrew Carpenter and Mike Bahner interact rarely, but at night they are Rural Electric, which the Portland Phoenix once called, "The coolest Maine band you've probably never heard of." The band, influenced by a wide array of musicians, has played throughout Maine for two decades.  With three CDs in circulation, Rural Electric has been compared to Wilco, Yo La Tengo, R.E.M., and Guided By Voices, and other groups that really have nothing to do with each other.  Perhaps uncategorizable, but always willing to try to please audiences with original music, the band simply will not go away. 


7/19 - TRAVIS CYR

  • Acoustic Folk & Roots Music

  • For the past 18 years Travis Cyr has been driving his acoustic freight train of cerebral folk & roots music all around the beautiful state of Maine. Quiet and gentle yet vast and strong, his songs are full of vividly honest and poetic lyrics and emotionally percussive acoustic guitar. He has released 7 CD's of all original material and his just finished work on a brand new recording to be released shortly. He has broken over (aprox.) 2,468 guitar strings (and counting) and played over 1500 shows. He is also the founder of the Arootsakoostik Music Festival and he looks forward to sharing his organic garden of songs with you.

8/2 - BLIND ALBERT band

  • Blues-Rock, Reggae, Original and Funk

  • Vincent Gabriel - guitar and vocals

  • Glen Bubose - bass guitar and vocals

  • Jason Dean - drums


8/9 - Averill Lovely and The Loveworks

  • The only thing better than swing is swing that’s had some of its polish rubbed off, been run through the blues mill, been driven down a country road, and rolled around in the bluegrass. When you’re done, you have a product that fairly well defies all reason and sensibility, but somehow it works. Averill Lovely and his father, Ralph, have been operating in this genre of Hillbilly Swing for a long time. This father/son duo has been playing together since the Carter Administration and chances are they’ll play through at least one more… Recently they have added Averill's talented niece, Ella Stevens, on guitar and vocals.  At fifteen years old, Ella is already an accomplished musician and songwriter and she rounds out three generations of music and tradition.


8/16 - alyssa kelly

  • Alyssa Kelly has been writing and performing original tunes for over 25 years. Her Americana sound is grounded in poetic lyrics and stop-what-you’re-doing-and-listen vocals. She’s opened for Ellis Paul and The Mallet Brothers Band, and her influences include Kathleen Edwards and Willie Nelson. A bona fide luddite, she does not have a social media presence; you’ll just have to come see her play live.


8/23 - CALLAHAN BRIDGE

  • Callahan Bridge is fiddler Raelin Callahan and guitarist Kevin Callahan. The daughter/father duo is passionate about bridging generations, time past and present, locations far and near. They play music from Irish, Scottish, Quebecois, American Old Time, and other traditions. They consider these songs to be living treasures, and see themselves as both carriers of tradition as well as interpreters through the contemporary times.
