BATH — The Bath Youth Meetinghouse & Skate Park, Maine’s largest indoor skate park, has announced a summer benefit concert starring three outstanding local musical talents. The event begins at 5 p.m. Saturday, July 20, and weather permitting grilled food will be available along with snacks and drinks from the Skate Park snack bar.

Georgetown Island’s Lauren Crosby grew up listening to Johnny Cash and Janis Joplin, and will perform her sinewy storytelling and nimble guitar playing. Bath native Max Ater won the Grand Champion prize at the 2012 Maine’s Got Talent competition with his earthy, old-soul voice and beautifully rendered, piano-driven songs. The Sons of Quint’s particular brand of roadhouse rambunctiousness is the stuff of summer nightlife in Maine. They’re not above mixing a little 38 Special with Merle Haggard and Van Morrison in their live shows.

Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for those under 18. Proceeds will help the Meetinghouse & Skate Park continue to provide opportunities for the youth of Bath and surrounding communities to finesse their skateboarding, scooter and BMX biking skills, and gather and relax with friends, surrounded by arcade games, ping pong tables and computers. For more information, call 207-443-8750.
