PHILLIPS — The Sandy River Ramblers will bring their Maine-flavored bluegrass show to the Phillips Area Community Center on Saturday, Nov. 3.

The band is known for their vocal harmonies, instrumental playing and songwriting. Stan Keach, guitarist and chief songwriter of the group, is a nationally-known bluegrass songwriter, with several national hit songs to his credit.

Songs such as “Slow Down (You’ll Hit a Moose),” “Boots From L.L. Bean,” “Home in the Heart of Maine” and “Bear in the Barn” give this band a unique regional flavor. Besides songs about Maine, the Ramblers’ repertoire includes fiery instrumentals, bluegrass and country favorites, and plenty of comedy, including tunes played on the musical hand saw.

All the Ramblers sing, but vocalists Dana Reynolds and upright bassist Julie Davenport have particularly beautiful voices. Banjo player Bud Godsoe and mandolin player Dan Simons are the instrumental stars.

The music starts at 7 p.m. The Phillips Area Community Center is at 21 Depot St. Refreshments will be for sale. Seating is cabaret style. Tickets are $10 at the door, $5 for students. For more information, call 207-639-2630 or 207-397-2241.
