POLAND – The Poland Spring Preservation Society will welcome New Gloucester native Jim Gallant Monday, June 27, for his first appearance at the society’s summer concert series.

Whether performing at a coffeehouse, college concert or outdoor festival, audiences enjoy Gallant’s up-tempo guitar style, mix of catchy originals and masterful interpretations of contemporary music, according to the society. Whether he’s finger picking a Celtic jig, a Bach fugue or a New Age instrumental, his style has won him accolades.

Gallant’s versatility and skill as a performer have made him a natural opening act for such musicians as Doc Watson, Taj Mahal, Livingston Taylor, Colin Young and the Shaw Brothers. His down-to-earth sense of humor permeates his shows, and his mastery of finger style guitar and warm rich vocals will make for an evening you won’t soon forget.

All concerts are open to the public and are held at the All Souls Chapel in Poland Spring. This year’s concert series again features weekly raffles to support the restoration of the chapel’s Skinner organ.

Showtime is 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 and member seating is at 6:25. Admission is $5; all proceeds go to support the work of the preservation society.
