Maine · Music

I know what I’m doing this summer!

I just got my update from Great Big Sea. They are rapidly becoming my new favorite music group. Full of life and flavor I can’t stop listening to them. (Check out their music on MySpace) Only a few folks I know listen to them but they love them as much as I do! Anyway, just got an email with new concert dates and lo-and-behold one of them is in Maine……and its FREE!!! The 9th Annual LL Bean Summer Concert Series in Discovery Park is hosting them August 11th. Jazz, Folk, Celtic, and Cajun- there is music for everyone. I know where I’ll be….how about you?!?!?

I’m posting the schedule below so you can take a look at when folks are playing. We are talking some really cool folks here! I plan on being at more then one of these that’s for sure. Driving an hour or so to see Great Big Sea, Robert Cray, Shawn Colvin and Natalie Haas is well worth it. I’ll miss Mary Chapin Carpenter since I’m getting married, but I’ll there for several of the others. Hope to see you there too!
