The annual Belfast Summer Nights outdoor concert series will present two singer/songwriters Thursday, Aug. 18 at Steamboat Landing, on the waterfront below Belfast Common. The music will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Indie singer/songwriter Emelia Dahlin wields a voice that defies the size of her body and has carved out a spot as a distinctive songstress. She weaves mesmerizing tales (complete with Greek myths, robotic messiahs, epic floods, and tax evaders) with raw, rootsy folk and dynamic jazz vocals.

Waldo County’s own Travis LLoyd, whose band released its second album this spring, thought acting was his destiny after performing in a few Belfast Maskers productions as a youngster but that changed when he began writing songs and life became all about writing and producing music. He spent time working in the industry, at Rounder Records in Cambridge, Mass. and Activate Ent., a hip hop label in Los Angeles, but has returned to a quieter life in Jackson where he can make music with friends and family.

Lawn chairs, picnic suppers and dancing shoes are good things to bring along. As usual, the concert is free but donations to keep the series going are appreciated. For more information, call 322-7123.
