FARMINGTON — The Farmington Historical Society’s North Church Concert Series will present Bill Berlinghoff at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at 118 High Street. Doors open at 6 p.m. for a “pie social” and jam session.

A folksinger in the Pete Seeger tradition, Berlinghoff has more than a half-century of professional performing experience, from Maine to Virginia and as far west as Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Oregon. 

In his rich, flexible baritone accompanied by banjo or guitar, Berlinghoff sings a wide range of songs, spanning traditional mountain music of Tennessee, popular folk music of the ’60s, topical songs of quiet coffeehouses, and rowdy pub sing-alongs, and a few originals. 

His album, ‘A Time for Getting Wiser,’ got regional and national airplay, and he has appeared on cable television in both Connecticut and Maine.

On May 27 Bill will be one of the performing artists at the Third Annual UnampliFire Festival of World Wide Roots music in London, England.

Show tickets are $15 for the general population, $10 for high school and college students, preschoolers and any student participating in the jam session are free.

Reservations may be made by phone. 

FMI: 207-778-2006.
