Thursday evening, Nov. 12, Necessary Music Productions will launch a sporadic concert series at Flatbread Company on Route 1. The series is dedicated to featuring primarily acoustic music, spanning roots, Americana, old-timey blues; everything in between; their descendants.

The series opens with Waldo County’s own Sugarbush, which was a big hit at the O'Chang Comics “Temp Tales” release party a couple weeks back. Sugarbush will play Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m. for those enjoying a nice dinner of delicious flatbread pizza and selections from the full bar. There is no added cost, beyond dinner and drinks.

Sugarbush would be one of the finest old-timey bands in the state of Maine if all they did was sing the songs they write a cappella, but they also play instruments. With Becca Biggs on lead vocals and banjo; Camille Giglio on lead vocals and cello; and Amy Green on lead vocals, guitar and mandolin, they have been garnering happy fans since they started playing together last winter. All are lifetime Mainers, farmers, partners, mothers and artists, so Sugarbush serves as a compelling example of the new generation of true Renaissance women here on the Midcoast.
