CAMDEN — Camden Community Coffee House (Chestnut Street Baptist Church 29 Chestnut Street Camden, Maine) will continue their series of Coffee House Concerts September 22, 2017 with The LaClaire's.

Phil and Ellen LaClaire have a passion for acoustic roots, bluegrass, folk and gospel music. They both grew up singing in church and come from extended families who spent many evenings playing traditional ballads, gospel and old-time country music together. When they married in 1972, they combined their musical interests and formed The LaClaire Family Band in 1988. This band originally included daughters Jessica and Sarah, Mom Beverly LaClaire and Uncle Al Williams.

Phil is an accomplished musician, vocally and on the guitar and banjo. Ellen supports with vocal leads and harmonies and excellent work on the upright bass. They are joined by Dave Knightly who plays superb mandolin and fiddle and offers vocal leads/harmonies and some humor to keep things interesting. Jeanine Loubier adds her considerable skills on mandolin, banjo and fiddle as well as vocal harmonies.

The LaClaires are known for their soothing musical style and comfortable presence. They have produced twelve CD recording projects and perform often at churches, festivals, homecomings, weddings, fairs, etc.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The Coffee House will feature an Open Mic from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Sign up to perform is required from 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., or by calling (207) 542-0360 within the 24 hours before doors open. If you want to come share music, or poetry, the mic will be waiting.
