2018 Roots on the Rocks with ELLIS PAUL and friends SAM BAKER and ANTJE DUVEKOT
Monday, June 11th, 2018
7:00 PM
June 11th - June 16th, 2018-Ten miles off the formidable rocky coastline of Maine, Monhegan Island with a year-round population of 65 hardy souls, has long been welcoming painters, hikers, birders, sea kayakers, and others in search of an unplugged, scaled-back escape. Accessible only by boat (we take the mail ferry over!), Monhegan boasts no paved roads, virtually no cell signal, and a commitment to careful stewardship of its natural resources and way of life. It is a gem of a place, perfect for hosting a trio of the finest singer-songwriters working today, Ellis Paul, Sam Baker and Antje Duvekot, and a small group of their fans and friends. We hope you’ll consider joining us for this unique musical journey to one of Maine’s legendary outpost island communities! By day, we'll explore the rocky and uninhabited islands of Musgongus Bay, visit with local lobstering crews, connect with the artists who have claimed Monhegan as their muse and hike the miles of spectacular trails along the pristine coastline. In the evenings we'll gather for intimate, entirely acoustic, concerts in the village church - a unique opportunity to hear the music of world-class artists in its most elemental form.
