SEARSMONT — On Saturday, Sept. 4, at 4 p.m., local favorite Barn Dance Band will wrap up Searsmont Town Library’s Live Outside the Library summer concert series.

Bringing oodles of old time country music favorites and Downeast fiddling, the four piece all-acoustic string band puts on a fun and hearty show to cap what has been a tremendously successful and memorable summer of music in the heart of Waldo County.

“It’s been all outdoors, except for the Blues Prophets show in June, which we moved inside because of local tornado warnings (we got thunder and hail) and everyone has been so good about COVID protocols,” said Library Director Steven Brown. “People are here for the music and you can see how rewarding that is for them and for the musicians too.”

Bring your own chair or blanket; the concert will move into the community building if there is rain. Admission is free, but registration is required; send contact information and the number in your party to The library is located at 37 Main St. South.

This series is funded through generous grants from the Onion Foundation, Friends of Searsmont Library, and the Maine Arts Commission.
