Singer/songwriter Dave Mallett, a Maine icon; the Bangor Symphony Orchestra, with Grammy Award-winning maestro Lucas Richman; R&B/Soul singer Leah Tysse; fiddle legend and MPBN host Frank Ferrel; and the Acadian band Boreal Tordu are just a few of the performers who’ll be taking to the stage at the ninth annual Kingfield POPS concert, June 25, 2011.
This is a music and arts festival that flies under the radar, but it shouldn’t. Other performers include the Native American ensemble the Burnurwurbskek Singers, Franklin County Fiddlers, and the Western Mountain Trash Can Band. Complementing the performances is an arts festivals featuring artists and artisans from the Western Maine Mountains area. It’s a great opportunity to hear some of Maine’s best musicians and see topnotch art, too.
