ROUND POND – The Little Brown Church in Round Pond will welcome Brunswick songwriter Jud Caswell at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 6. A frequent performer at the King Eider Pub in Damariscotta, he has won eight nationally recognized songwriting contests, including the Dave Carter Memorial, Boston Folk Festival and Kerrville New Folk competitions.

His song “Blackberry Time” is being taught in the songwriting curriculum at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Caswell grew up on a little farm in Morrill, picking carrots and milking goats, listening to records by Cat Stevens and the Beatles, and reading Mark Twain and Kahlil Gibran. A multi-instrumentalist from an early age, he wandered through jazz bands, orchestras and medieval ensembles before finding his home on the acoustic guitar.

Concert tickets are $12 for adults; children under 12 admitted free. The Little Brown Church is on Route 32 in Round Pond Village. The pews can be hard so feel free to bring a cushion. Proceeds from Little Brown Church summer concerts help with the maintenance fund. Call 529-5438 for information and reservations.
