Bluegrass musician will play to help SAVES
FARMINGTON — Folk and bluegrass musician Ruth Hill will perform Friday, June 19, at a concert benefiting Sexual Assault Victims Emergency Services. The 7 p.m. concert will be in Merrill Hall’s Nordica Auditorium on the University of Maine at Farmington campus.
Over the years, Hill’s reputation as a gifted vocalist, guitarist and banjo-picker has drawn increasing numbers of fans to her concerts. Her shows are lively and offer an eclectic mix of covers ranging from folk and bluegrass favorites like Joni Mitchell, Cheryl Wheeler and Jonathan Edwards to John Prine, Leonard Cohen and Michelle Shocked. She has also built a  repertoire of original songs. 
Hill will be joined onstage by fellow local musicians Leslie Geissinger and Andy Buckland.
Tickets may be purchased in advance on a $10 sliding scale (more if you can, less if you can’t) at the SAVES office at 227 Main St., second floor. Tickets will also be available at the door.
