The Sunday September 5 concert will begin at noon with an interactive songwriting workshop conducted by award-winning Americana band Low Lily, followed by the All-Brights who play a wide variety of funky old tunes, country-folk-Americana, and heartfelt originals. Delta Knights, who have been a Maine favorite for 25 years, will follow, bringing the best of R&B, blues, classic rock, and swing.
