SOUTH CARTHAGE — Many Maine musicians including The Don Roy Band and Boreal Tordu will perform a benefit concert at Skye Theatre Performing Arts Center at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, March 18.

With the announcement of the closing of Skye Theatre in September many musicians have rallied their support to help Skye Theatre meet its expenses this final season. Director Phill McIntyre said, “It is a very difficult decision to end programing at Skye this year. Many musicians who have played here over the years are coming back to help us stay in the black this final season. Skye is very special to them and it has been great to see several artists make the transition from this stage to the festivals and larger stages beyond Maine.”

Playing at the benefit concert will be the Don Roy Band which includes Don and Cindy Roy, Jay Young and Larry Burkette.

The Acadian/Quebecois band, Boreal Tordu is well recognized for its high-spirited performances. Members are Maine master fiddler Steve Muise; vocalist and composer Rob Sylvain; guitarist and vocalist Pip Walters; and on upright bass Andy Buckland.

Maine country fiddle legend Bill Scott & Friends, Jody and Bill Kasregis are also scheduled to perform. Filling out the evening will be Maine luthier and performer Nick Apoilonio. Ellie Buckland will represent the Patriot Renewables Emerging Artist Series which is in its third year at Skye.

A pre-show jam session will start at 6 p.m. Skye Theater is at 9 Highland Drive. Ticket price is $15. More information is available at www.necelticarts.com or call 207-562-4445.
