BAR HARBOR – None of The Chickadees are old enough to remember hearing “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” when it was first on the radio, but the five-member girl group sings songs like it from the 1940s and ’50s “because that music is so keen.”

The group started last summer as a project of the Acadia Community Theater and the five — Molly Damon of Northeast Harbor, Danielle Shepard of Seal Cove, Tatiana Curtis of Seal Cove, Caroline Homer of Southwest Harbor, and Isabelle Simbari of Hancock — have been performing together ever since.

Their next performance is at the Jesup Memorial Library in Bar Harbor, on Sunday, Jan. 13, beginning at 2 p.m. The show is free, though donations to the library are always appreciated.

“We love singing beautiful music with gorgeous harmonies,” said Ms. Shepard, “and we love being sisters bonded by our passion for singing. We also love the hi-jinx that inevitably ensue when you get five high-spirited girls together!
