From Away Downeast
From Away Downeast

On Friday, September 1st, Downeast Lakes Land Trust is pleased to welcome back “From Away Downeast,” leading performers of historical and traditional music in Downeast Maine.  For their “Maine Woods – Maine Waters” performance, you’ll hear songs of working “in the woods,” “driving” logs down flooded rivers, watching the coastline, harvesting the fish of Maine’s waters, and sailing to far away places. Some of the songs tell of adventure, others of good times, others of hard times, and some of disaster.  “From Away Downeast” is Susan Sanfilippo (vocal, limberjack), Jim Sherman (vocal, guitar), Kris Paprocki (vocal, fiddle, banjo, guitar), and Stephen Sanfilippo (vocal, concertina, harmonica, banjo, guitar), and “the Audience,” which is invited to sing along on the choruses of these great songs of Maine’s tradition of working and singing in Nature.

This performance will have a suggested donation of $5, and all proceeds from the show will benefit the Grand Lake Stream Historical Society.  The performance will begin at 6 pm in the Grand Lake Stream School Building.  For more information, please contact DLLT at (207) 796 – 2100, or email
