NEW SHARON — The Sandy River Ramblers will bring their unique Maine-flavored bluegrass show to the Brick Church at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 27, at 21 Cape Cod Hill Road.
 
The Brick Church concert series, which benefits the New Sharon Church UCC, has been a successful venture.
 
The five-piece band is known for gorgeous vocal harmonies, virtuoso instrumental playing, and outstanding songwriting. Their 2012 CD, “Cry of the Loon and other original songs about Maine,” has been praised by writer George Smith, who calls the CD “a gift to Mainers.”
 
Stan Keach, guitarist and chief songwriter of the group, is a nationally-known Bluegrass songwriter with several national hit songs to his credit. 

Besides songs about Maine, the Ramblers’ repertoire includes fiery instrumentals, bluegrass and country favorites, and plenty of comedy, including a tune played on the musical hand saw, something not seen often since the vaudeville era.

Tickets are $10 at the door; people under 18 years old can attend free.

Refreshments will be for sale at intermission.

FMI: 207 397-2241.
