PHILLIPS — On Saturday, Nov. 4, the Sandy River Ramblers will return to the Phillips Area Community Center, 15 Depot St., for a concert of bluegrass music, featuring many original songs about Maine.

The band features the banjo stylings of Bud Godsoe of Madrid, who learned to play banjo while working in Alaska in the 1970s. Mandolin player Dan Simons shares lead-playing duties with Madrid.

The Ramblers also feature vocal talents of bassist Julie Davenport and 16-year-old Dana Reynolds, and the songwriting of Stan Keach, who writes many songs about Maine topics, including “Boots From L.L. Bean,” “Trout on the Line” and “Slow Down (You’ll Hit a Moose).”

The Ramblers plan to bring a surprise guest star or two to the show, which promises to be a crowd-pleaser.

The concert, which will benefit the Phillips Area Community Center, will begin at 7 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults; $5 for students; $1 discount for leaders of the PACC.
