CARTHAGE — A Maine-born country musician will perform original music from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday, July 13, at Bradbury’s Market and Diner in an effort to spread awareness about stopping bullying.

Resident Pam Turner said Dom Colizzi, who was born and raised in Oakland and later moved to Nashville, Tenn., agreed to play from 4 to 6 p.m. and perform a DJ set from 6 to 8 p.m.

The concert was planned by Turner, who co-wrote an autobiography with Dixfield pastor Ken Hinkley in 2013 titled, “Through Troubled Waters.” It tells of her experiences with bullying and verbal abuse.

“Dom has spoken out about how he is very much against bullying,” Turner said. “I knew that he was from Maine, so I contacted him through Facebook to see if he would be interested in performing in Carthage.”

Colizzi agreed to perform, with a portion of his earnings going toward a local anti-bullying school, Turner said.

Copies of Turner’s book will be available at the concert.
