KINGFIELD — On Saturday, June 24 , Kingfield will host an outdoor concert featuring with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra conducted by Grammy winner Lucas Richman, accompanied by Sultans of Sting and featuring Maine’s own Ghost of Paul Revere.

Audiences can expect to hear the welcoming sounds of the Western Mountain Trash Can Band at the gate, followed on stage by local talent Lula Wiles – a trio of young women who bring a spirited show that resonates like a “whisky slap to the heart.”

Performing earlier in the program this year, the Bangor Symphony Orchestra will deliver a powerful musical experience to be enjoyed by all generations of music lovers. World class musical collaboration will once again be on stage when the Sultans of String and BSO join together to bring music delights to the field.

Following a brief intermission, New England’s own Jason Spooner band will be appearing for the first time with the quartet delivering an interesting signature sound with wide appeal.

Back after rave reviews at  the 2016 concert,  Ghost of Paul Revere, Maine’s’ holler-folk band will bring powerful, energetic nontraditional American folk music to the field and will later be joined by the Maine Youth Rock Orchestra for a musical extravaganza.

Fireworks  will mark the end of the evening’s festivities.

Guests can bring a picnic or buy food from one of the local vendors and dine al fresco against the backdrop of the mountains. Off street parking is required. Follow signs for POPS Parking. Bringing a wagon or cooler with wheels will assist in getting items to the field. No pets, open flame or fireworks are permitted.

On June 23, the Friday night before the main event, Kingfield’s galleries and museums will open their doors to welcome visitors to the Kingfield Friday Artwalk.

And to start POPS day on Saturday, June 24,  the Kingfield POPS Road Race will be held at 9a.m., providing an opportunity to participate in a 1K (kids), 5K or 10K race.
