WALDOBORO — The Waldo Theatre invites you to a summer evening of music with MaMuse, the folk/gospel-inspired female singing duo, along with Camden Hills Regional High School a capella group, “Fortissima” on Thursday, August 18, at 7 p.m..
MaMuse (“Ma” as in Mamma; “Muse” as in the one who inspires) come to The Waldo from Sebastopol, California with a show that promises a harmonic, uplifting, folk-soul-revival; A Musical Tune-Up for the Heart.
“Wholeheartedly fed by the folk and gospel traditions, MaMuse (Sarah Nutting and Karisha Longaker) create uplifting music to inspire the world into thriving,” said The Waldo, in a news release. “Interweaving brilliant and haunting harmony with lyrics born of honed emotional intelligence, MaMuse invokes a musical presence that inspires the opening of the heart. Playing a family of varied acoustic instruments including upright bass, guitar, mandolins, ukulele, and flutes, these two powerful women embody a love for all life. The synergy that is created through this musical connection is palpable and truly moving to witness. With 13 delicious years of co-creation and 7 albums under their belts, MaMuse keep their hearts tuned to the creation of music for the health of ALL BEINGS.”
Fortissima will open the show with a few selected songs. Fortissima is the Camden Hills Regional High School a cappella group. This is an extra-curricular student-led ensemble which has been flourishing in dedication and musicality, according to The Waldo.
Concessions, including beer and wine for those 21+ will be available at the show. Doors open at 7pm. The Waldo is no longer requiring proof of vaccination and has shifted to masks optional for all visitors.
