BELFAST — Belfast Summer Nights, the weekly Thursday night outdoor music series, presents a holiday edition, Thursday, July 4, from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., at Steamboat Landing Park in Belfast for an evening with Mike McFarland and the band The Rugged.
Mike McFarland has played music in the Midcoast area for more than 50 years, being the 4th generation of his family to do so. He has played blues to bluegrass, rock to jazz.
McFarland will be featuring songs from his recent CD on the 4th and newer tunes as well.
The Rugged hail from the hills of Jackson. Cody Tibbetts, Tim Valliere and Travis Lloyd met at Morse Memorial Elementary School in Brooks. They played in various groups around the state over the years and eventually formed the trio in 2011.
Rock and roll from the swamp – a Maine swamp that is. Rural lyrical imagery, fuzzy atmospheric guitars and a bold rhythm section to help you shake, shake, shake it, according to Summer Nights, in a news release.
Their new album Down and Purty was released in June 2019.
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.
