AUGUSTA — Dave Rowe and The Squid Jiggers will perform at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 8, in Jewett Hall Auditorium at the University of Maine at Augusta.

The performance is part of the Concerts at Jewett Series, sponsored by UMA College of Arts and Sciences and UMA Senior College.

Snow date is Jan. 15.

This concert will include both the easy listening originals of singer/songwriter Rowe and the robust vocal harmonies of Rowe and Troy Bennett as The Squid Jiggers. Rowe, son of Tom Rowe of the popular folk group Schooner Fare, started in the family business early on and added songwriting to playing.

The Squid Jiggers perform Schooner Fare songs, as well as traditional maritime music, Downeast and Quebecois pieces while combining their talents on guitar, bass, bodhran and tin whistle.

In addition to appearing with The Squid Jiggers, Bennett tours extensively across New England with the Half Moon Jug Band, a high-octane folk group.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students and free for those 12 and younger. They are available at the door, as well as at Pat’s Pizza in Augusta and Dave’s Appliance in Winthrop.
