CAMDEN — As part of Coastal Mountains Land Trust's "Arts on the Hill" program, the Just Teachers dance band will perform on Saturday, August 7 at 6 p.m. The free concert will be held at Beech Nut, the 100-year-old stone hut at the top of the hill. Bring a blanket or lawn chair, drinks and snacks, and come up the hill with your dancing shoes on! Don’t forget to bring a flashlight to light your way down the farm road.
Just Teachers was founded in May of 2008 among staff members at CRMS. The name was born when, overheard rehearsing at Camden-Rockport Middle School one day, a student asked, “Where is that music coming from? Oh, it’s just teachers.” Over the last ten years there have been many different musicians who have played with the group and three of the founding members are still with the band. They are all local educators.
Band Members now include John Dow, Ian McKenzie, Matt Smith, Lucas Benner, Adam Bullar, Piet Lammert, Nick Blais.
Overflow parking will be available at the field next to the trailhead lot at 316 Beech Hill Road in Rockport. Please do not park on the town road. Plan to arrive early to allow time for the .75 mile walk up to Beech Nut. All Arts on the Hill performances are free and open to all ages but please leave your dogs at home. Refreshments and reception will follow the performance.
