Livingston Taylor has a 50-year career that has encompassed performance, songwriting, and teaching. Born in Boston and raised in North Carolina, Livingston is the fourth child in a very musical family that includes Alex, James, Kate, and Hugh. Livingston recorded his first record at the age of 18 and has continued to create well crafted, introspective, and original songs that have earned him listeners worldwide. From top-40 hits “I Will Be in Love with You” and “I’ll Come Running,” to “I Can Dream of You” and “Boatman,” the last two recorded by his brother James. Livingston is a full professor at Berklee College of Music.

Don Campbell Band is an adult contemporary/country crossover and folk-rock singer-songwriter whose uniquely clear and well-delivered presentation of music supports the story in the song and welcomes the audience on board for the ride. Often compared to the sounds of Dan Fogelberg, Vince Gill, and Chris Isaak, Don and his ensembles are based out of New England.

Matt Fournier is decidedly making music solely a product of his own creativity. This shows his talent and tells a detailed story of where Matt has traveled musically and personally since his musical career started in the late 1990's. As he continues in his pursuits with his acclaimed band Beyond the Fall as well as Doctor Fatfinger, he seems to be able to separate the emotional side of writing between his creative outlets, that seems to parallel his life within the different musical genres he explores. A talented singer to enjoy this summer, The Latch is made up of four music loving teens that came together at the right time and are loving what they do. This group is looking to show other kids that there is more  to life than video games and cell phones. Members of LaTCH include Tyler Bosse on drums, Hunter Bosse on bass guitar, Camden Colby guitar and vocals and Leah Licata vocals and tambourine. Come and enjoy these wonderful artists from Western Maine.
