Arts on the Hill: Dave Mallett

August 19, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Coastal Mountains Land Trust is excited to welcome the Dave Mallett Band for a special Arts on the Hill event, a “Concert for the Hill,” to benefit our Beech Hill Fields and Habitat Initiative. Join us for this special concert with one of America’s true original troubadours on Saturday, August 19 at 6:00 p.m. (rain date is Sunday, August 20).

In a career spanning five decades, Dave has recorded 17 albums and performed across the US, Canada, and Europe. Known for his carefully written poetic offerings, his body of work has provided material for an eclectic list of artists that that includes Alison Krauss, Pete Seeger, Hal Ketchum, Emmylou Harris, John Denver, and the Muppets. Mallett’s music is a reminder of the connection with the earth and with days gone by – and of the memories and dreams that sustain us.

The Concert for the Hill is the public launch of the Beech Hill Initiative which seeks to raise the funds to support the management of Beech Hill’s historic landscape for the benefit of wildlife, blueberries, children and community events (like these concerts!), and the scenic views of the coastal mountains and Penobscot Bay. The Land Trust’s goal is to raise $350,000 to support the long-term field and habitat management practices needed to sustain this truly one-of-a-kind community asset.

Like all the concerts in the Arts on the Hill series, this event is free and open to the public, but we will be inviting those in attendance to consider a donation for the Beech Hill Initiative on the night and/or in the days that follow it. We hope to reach our fundraising goal by the end of 2023. More than ever, we are expecting a full house (hill) for Dave’s concert and ask that you 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.
