BELFAST — Drivetrain and the Maine Coast Worksongers bring melodic drive and groovy island vibes to Belfast Summer Nights, Thursday, July 11, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at Belfast Common Park, Belfast.

Drivetrain combines the power of bluegrass with the melodic drive of good fiddle tunes. The band brings hometown singer and guitar picker Bennett Konesni together with fiddler Ed Howe.

In great demand as dance musicians, together they tour the country igniting crowds with their virtuosity, tone, and their bluegrassy take on classic Maine fiddle tunes and songs, according to Belfast Summer Nights, in a news release.

The Maine Coast Worksongers return to Belfast Summer Nights with their breed of worksongs crossed with an island vibe.

Shepsi Eaton, of Darthia Farm in Gouldsboro, and Bennett Konesni, of Duckback Farm in Belfast, are longtime farming buddies who work up most of their material while actually out in the fields, then adapt the songs for the instrumentation and format of the stage. 

Concert is free, and donations will be accepted in the hat.

Bring a chair or a blanket, a picnic and a friend.

Please no dogs in the concert area.

Concerts are weather dependent, check Belfast Summer Nights Facebook page for updates.
