Tricky Britches to perform on waterfront


GARDINER — Johnson Hall Performing Arts Center will present Tricky Britches as part of its summer series of free outdoor concerts. The performance will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 13, at the Waterfront Park.

Raised in Maine, cured on street corners and next to woodstoves, string band Tricky Britches is a unique culmination of country, contra dance, bluegrass and rock. They’ve played festivals and concerts across the U.S., Europe and Hawaii, drawing inspiration from those places and experiences to shape their original music.

Tricky Britches formed in 2009, when four friends in Portland took their fiddle tunes and country songs on the road across the country. Since then, they have recorded two albums of original material: “Hard Fought Day” and “Good Company.”

Johnson Hall Performing Arts Center brings the Waterfront Summer Concert Series to audiences in partnership with the city of Gardiner, Gardiner Main Street and a grant from the Coombs Family Trust. Everyone is welcome.
