Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St., will host Tremolino Friday, Oct. 28 at 7:30 p.m. as part of a benefit evening for Sebasticook Regional Land Trust.

Fado, a unique music form, is a fiery, soulful folk song style from Portugal characterized by passionate lyrics and mournful tunes. The music is said to be the oldest urban folk music in the Western world, representing the voice of the Portuguese soul, yet unfamiliar to most people in Maine. Tremolino is a trio of Waldo County musicians featuring singer Leslie Stein, who has sung various kinds of music over the years, from folk to rock to musicals and jazz. Fado is her current passion, and she also plays guitar. Stein also has performed as an actor in Midcoast and central Maine theaters.

The group also includes guitarist Jim Macdonald, who has explored many kinds of music; and Chris Marshall, who has been in a Russian balalaika group, a Javanese gamelan and a Bulgarian dance band. Tremolino’s repertoire also includes songs from Spain, Greenwich Village and other exotic locales. For this show, dancer Shana Bloomstein will interpret the songs in dance. Imaginative and delightful to watch, she has been enchanting audiences in the area for years since growing up in Freedom.

Based in Unity, Sebasticook Regional Land Trust works with central Maine landowners to conserve productive farmlands, rich woodlots and diverse wetlands.
