JEFFERSON, Maine — Two area bands and a local guitarist will present a rollicking musical concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 11, at the Old Town House, 7 Gardiner Road.
The concert will benefit the on-going restoration project of the Old Jefferson Town House by the Jefferson Historical Society. “Rose and the Teardrops” are a midcoast Maine–based group that enjoy playing and singing with a down east, down home flavor. Their style of music ranges from bluegrass to folk, older country, some sixties rock, and bluegrass gospel.
The group features Nancy Jones, who hails from Warren,Maine, (vocals, guitar and pennywhistle); Pendra Legasse, a lifelong Camden resident (vocals); Cindy Millar from Washington, Maine (vocals, mandolin, guitar) and Rosey Gerry, from Lincolnville (vocals, banjo, and autoharp).
The second band performing will be another Mid-coast band, “Rusty Hinges” who sing folk, bluegrass, oldies, sea shanties, and more accompanied by guitars, pennywhistles, mandolin, fiddle, bouzouki and ukulele. Special guest performer will be Jeffersonguitarist Bill Tozier.
The Old Town House is handicapped accessible. For tickets ($10) and information, call 207-549-5258.
(You may want to bring a seat cushion to soften the old seats.) Raffle tickets for the JHS $500 cash raffle to be drawn August 18 also will be available.
