Castine Town Band to Play at Wilson Museum

CASTINE, Maine — The picturesque grounds of the Wilson Museum on Perkins Street, on the shore of Castine Harbor, will be the location of an outdoor concert by the Castine Town Band at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 3.

In the late nineteenth century Castine’s Town Band was a proud contributor to patriotic events and summer evening entertainments. Revived in 1998 by a group of like-minded musicians, the Band, by 2004, was recognized as one of the top four municipal bands in Maine. Membership in the Band is open to players of all ages and talent. It is a fine blend of locals, retirees and summer people who have one common interest – playing in the Town Band.

The Museum is proud to host the Castine Town Band, tying the past with the present. Bring a chair or blanket and enjoy this free concert.
