PARIS — Maine musicians will come together to perform Friday, Feb. 12, at a benefit for the Open Sky Fund, which provides musical instruments and lessons for children.

The fund was set up in memory of well-known local musician Evandle Lawton, who was a member of the Stoned Mountain Boyz and beloved friend to many.
