Coastal Mountains Land Trust’s Arts on the Hill program brings Bennett Konesni to Beech Hill Preserve on Thursday, September 28 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
You’ve heard of “whistle while you work,” but did you know there is a long history of folks singing while they work? Just think of some of the old sea shanties. Farmer and internationally acclaimed folk musician Bennett Konesni is an expert on the songs that farmers, loggers, and sailors alike have sung to pass the time and foster unity. At moonrise we’re going to sing call and response songs from the Hindi tradition called Kirtan, with Shepsi Eaton from Darthia Farm in Gouldsboro.
Come on up the hill for your chance to join in the singing! Refreshments will be served.
This promises to be a wonderful end to our summer series! Free and open to all ages but please leave your dogs at home.
This season’s Arts on the Hill music series is brought to you by our lead sponsors Cold Mountain Builders and Emily & Jonathan McDevitt, and our partner sponsors Bangor Savings Bank, Camden Coast Real Estate, and Maine Coast Orthodontics.
