SEARSPORT — Fans of bluegrass music are invited to Searsport Shores Campground for a weekend of music, workshops and a celebration of two traditional New England pursuits, bluegrass music and camping.

Vacationland Bluegrass Jam Camp has partnered with the Old Time Campout to create Strung Together: A Fine Old Time on Penobscot Bay. The event is hosted by The Makers Guild of Maine and Searsport Shores Campground.

Special musical guests this year include Skip Gorman, Fred Coon, Ed Howe, Gus La Casse, and local violin-maker Linden Frederick.

The quilters of Gee Bend, Ala., will open the weekend on Sept. 16 with a design and piece quilt workshop.

Skip Gorman kicks off the weekend concerts at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 17. Gorman is an iconic figure in the American Folk music scene.

“Come play, take some workshops, enjoy the concerts, eat some fantastic food and hang with great people,” said Steven Tanguay, co-owner of Searsport Shores.

Workshops and jam sessions are being offered throughout the weekend for those interested in getting involved with the music or quilting.
