HARRINGTON, ME, JUNE 19, 2014: Acts from Nashville, Boston and Maine have been signed to perform at this year’s Down East Country Fest. The event will take place on Saturday, July 12, at the Harrington VFW Hall in Harrington, ME.

Artists include up and coming country music star Rachel Lipsky. Lipsky has had a very successful career and brings an impressive resume to Down East Country Fest. She has shared the bill with many of the top country acts in the world, including Brantly Gilbert, Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley. Along with Lipsky, Boston-based Miller’s English will again be appearing at Down East Country Fest, as well as local favorites The Stillwaters Band and Milbridge’s own Tyler Openshaw. More artists are expected to be added to the line-up.

Caleb Paul, founder and promoter of Down East Country Fest, explains, “It is rare that Down East Maine has the opportunity to host such talented musicians. I want to make sure the fifth year anniversary will be something special and believe this year’s line up will be the most talented from beginning to end in the five-year history of Down East Country Fest.”

Now in its fifth year, Down East Country Fest, sponsored in part by Machias Savings Bank, is an annual music event in Washington County, Maine. It features a variety of music, including country, blues, bluegrass, and Americana. Past performers have included Nashville recording artists Michael Peterson, Maine-native Johnny Hiland, Jason Sturgeon, Lisa Torres and Andy Griggs.

Advance tickets start at only $10. This event will be BYOB and attendees must be 21 years of age or older, or accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
