Houser, Edwards set for fest
Rockland — Randy Houser will perform at the Maine Lobster Festival Friday, Aug. 3 at 7:30 p.m., fresh on the wings of "How Country Feels," his hot single on the charts. Opening will be rising young Maine artist Amy Allen.
"People are ready for real country music again," Houser has said, and few people in a better position to give it to them. Blessed with one of his generation's great voices, he also is a expert songwriter, penning hits for artists including Trace Adkins and Justin Moore, and a seasoned entertainer known for passion and energy on the stage.
“I saw him last week, and he was awesome,” said festival director Celia Knight. "His show really rocked."
Tickets for stage-area seating at Hauser's concert are $25, available through mainelobsterfestival.com; by phone at (800) LOB-CLAW (service charge may apply); and at the offices of the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce at 2 Park Drive in Rockland or the public landing in Camden.
The evening concert Thursday, Aug. 2 will feature Jonathan Edwards, with the Don Campbell Band opening. General admission festival tickets will get concertgoers up close that night. Stage-area tickets for the Saturday, Aug. 4 headlining concert by 38 Special, announced last week, are $30. Concert tickets include festival admission.
The 65th annual Maine Lobster Festival, five days of fun and feasting on the coast of Maine, will run Wednesday through Sunday, Aug. 1 through 5 at Harbor Park.
