The “Concerts at Jewett” Series sponsored by the University of Maine at Augusta College of Arts and Sciences and UMA Senior College will feature Julia Lane and Fred Gosbee of the folk duo Castlebay in “Bygone Ballads of Maine” on Sunday, April 7, 2019, 2PM at UMA Jewett Auditorium.
Julia Lane on Celtic harp and Fred Gosbee on 12-string guitar, fiddle and woodwinds will treat the audience to music collected across the state from coastal seafaring communities to woodland logging camps. Recently Julia has transcribed about 150 nautical songs from field recordings collected in Maine (1925-1945) from the Helen Hartness Flanders Collection at Middlebury College, Middlebury, Vermont and the program will include some of these songs. Castlebay tours the US east coast as well as Ireland, Scotland, and England. “Concerts at Jewett” is pleased to host this accomplished duo once again at Jewett Auditorium.
Tickets are $10, students $5, 12 & under free. Tickets are available at Dave’s Appliance in Winthrop and at the door. Call 621-3551, or email email@example.com for more information or for mail order tickets.
