CAMDEN — The Camden Public Library will once again host Down East Singers on Sunday, Oct. 16, at 2 p.m., in the Camden Amphitheatre for a free community concert.
This year, they will perform with T-Acadie, a trio from Maine specializing in Acadian folk music. Band members Pam Weeks, Jim Joseph, and Bill Olsen play a variety of music from French Canadian and New England traditions; Cajun waltzes and blues; two steps; and Zydeco tunes, plus a variety of songs in 3-part harmony.
The concert will also include a preview of the Down East Singers' Noël Français concerts in December that will include French-Canadian carols and European French holiday repertoire.
Some chairs will be provided for the October concert, but concert-goers are also encouraged to bring camp chairs for comfortable seating. The rain date for this event is October 23.
