It’s a favorite time of year! Free concerts for the community sponsored by Friends of the Topsham Public Library on the first four Saturdays in March at 1pm! Does it get any better? This year’s lineup is as follows:
Miscellania, Bowdoin College’s oldest women’s a cappella group, will start things off on Saturday, March 2. Miscellania formed in 1972 –the year after women were admitted to the college. During this past year, Miscellania won the college champion title from WGBH’s TV show Sing That Thing! and opened for The Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall. The group continues to explore different musical genres from traditional, jazz, R&B and pop, and perform at campus events and in the New England area.
Porch Light, an acoustic duo featuring Matt Loosigian and Topsham Public Library’s own Mariah Sewall, offer daring and delicious vocal harmonies on Americana and folk covers. Porch Light will perform Saturday, March 9.
Our final concert on Saturday, March 23 features Pejepscot Station, a high-energy bluegrass band comprised of veteran musicians hailing from the mid-coast Maine area. The band has been performing throughout southern Maine since 2011.Their repertoire is a mix of traditional and contemporary bluegrass, Americana, and some “bluegrassified” favorites thrown in. Tight vocal harmonies and an informal and relaxed stage presence make for an enjoyable and fun show appropriate for all.
Every concert is free and open to all ages. Refreshments will be provided. You don’t want to miss the fun! See you there!
