UMF Summer Concert Series events:

Saturday, June 25, Nuclear Salad and Sagittarius Rising

This first concert features two of Farmington’s favorite local bands. Nuclear Salad is a trio of local musicians who draw inspiration anywhere from Jerry Garcia and John Prine to Bob Dylan and Neil Young. Their original music is a blend of folk and rock with a satirical edge. Band members include Ryan Jones on lead guitar and vocals, Peter Hardy on rhythm guitar and vocals, and Doug Reusch on violin.

Sagittarius Rising is twin sister duo Isabelle and Phoebe Rogers from Farmington. Together, they create uplifting original music inspired by nature and the imagination with vocal harmonies, guitar and percussion.

The Emery Arts Center is located on Academy St. (between Main St. and High St.) in downtown Farmington. For more information contact Ann Bartges, director of UMF Emery Community Arts Center at [email protected] or 207-778-7461.
