POLAND SPRING — The Poland Spring Preservation Society will welcome the Half Moon Jug Band on Monday, July 12, as part of its summer concert series.

The four-man band plays homemade music. You won’t hear it on the radio. Members play guitars, banjos, mandolins and hefty bass riffs. They also wield kazoos, trumpets, harmonicas and thumping drums. If it sounds good, if the audience claps, if it feels honest — it’s jug band music.

The band thrives on interaction with its audiences. For band mates, it’s not just about standing on-stage playing songs. It’s about singing, dancing and making people happy. With that in mind, they punctuate every performance with jokes, stories and mandatory singalongs. For more information on the band, visit http:///halfmoonjugband.com.

The concert will begin at 7 p.m. at All Souls Chapel. Tickets, $7.50 at the door, include refreshments. All proceeds benefit the preservation and restoration of the Maine State Building and All Souls Chapel, and the nonprofit’s educational programs. For more information, call 998-4142 or visit www.polandspringps.org.
