BELFAST — An outstanding pairing of ThunderHeart Lion and Shirt Tail Kin make for a vibrant evening of original music in the heart of the Belfast Summer Nights series, Thursday, July 28, at Steamboat Landing from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

ThunderHeart Lion is a gentle force consisting of acoustic guitarist and songwriter Travis Cyr, upright bassist Jed Bresette (Tricky Britches, Bad Combo) and Courtney Martin on vocals. They perform original, spacey folk and cerebral roots music from Maine. Cyr’s lyrically-driven songs are vivid, honest and poetic.

Returning to the Belfast Summer Nights stage is Shirt Tail Kin. Curtis Russet on guitar and vocals, Mike Bennett on drums, Pete Davis on pedal steel and guitar, and Ezra Rugg continue to bring a rock ‘n roll sound with a country vibe that moves the audience every time.

This evening’s concert sponsor is GO Logic. Admission is free, though a hat is passed for free-will donations. No dogs allowed in the lower concert area. Bring a picnic, family, friends, chairs and dancing shoes to enjoy this fun event. For more information, visit or call 207-322-7123.
