Come expecting some boisterous music: three-part harmonies, fire-breathing fiddle and mandolin licks, and the thump-thump of a stand-up bass. Critics have commented that Tricky Britches reintroduces us to the delicious crudeness of early-century tunes at the same time they manage to produce some originals that “sound old as dirt.”

The concert will be offered free of charge, but donations will be accepted. Summery lemonade and cookies by Hungry Hollow Bakery will be available for sale at the intermission, and Tricky Britches will make their CDs available for sale after the performance. The concert is sponsored by the Bell Hill Meetinghouse Association, a community group dedicated to the preservation of the historic meetinghouse, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Those planning to wend their way to the concert may wish to stop first at the Old Town House at 53 Bell Hill Road, where the Otisfield Historical Society will be serving strawberry shortcake from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Society members will be on hand to show off the results of their two-year effort to rescue that building, built in 1905, including the Sybil Lamb Archival Room, a climate-controlled space where the Society’s collection of documents and artifacts is now housed.
