LIVERMORE – On Saturday, June 29, from 6 to 8 p.m., the Sandy River Ramblers will present an outdoor bluegrass concert at the Washburn-Norlands Living History Center in Livermore. The Washburn-Norlands Center, a beautiful Victorian property maintained as a historical museum, working farm and event venue, is located at 290 Norlands Road.

The Sandy River Ramblers are a bluegrass band with a uniquely Maine flavor; their most recent 2 CDs, Cry of the Loon and Home in the heart of Maine, features songs about Maine exclusively. Maine historical events, Maine wildlife, and Maine humor find their way into Rambler songs. Stan Keach, the band’s chief songwriter, is a nationally known bluegrass songwriter and member of the Maine Country Music Hall of Fame. The Ramblers also boast gorgeous 3- and 4-part harmony singing and lead vocals by Keach and bassist Julie Davenport, who Keach says is “the best bluegrass singer in Maine.”

The stellar instrumental playing of banjoist Bud Godsoe, fiddler Brendan Hickey and mandolinist Bobby St. Pierre are also highlighted.

This will be an open air concert in the courtyard of the main house. If it rains, it will move into the barn. Participants are advised to bring lawn chairs or picnic blankets. Admission is free. Donations are welcome to support the Norlands summer program. Norlands is a 301(c) non-profit organization.

For more information, call Stan at (207) 485-0298 or the Washburn-Norlands Living History Center (207) 897-4366.
