Peterson Project concludes Midsummer Lakeside Concert series

In a late program change, a performance by the eclectic, rootsy Peterson Project concludes the annual Bates College Midsummer Lakeside Concert Series at 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 12, in the Florence Keigwin Amphitheater at the college’s Lake Andrews.

Sponsored by the Garcelon Society, the Bingham Betterment Fund and the Harward Center for Community Partnerships at Bates, these family concerts are open to the public at no cost. Listeners are encouraged to bring a picnic and lawn chairs or blankets.

An alternative site will be announced in case of rain. For more information, please call 207-786-6400.

This local ensemble offers a mash-up of blues, bluegrass and jazz. Blues harmonica player and vocalist Mark Peterson, bluegrass fiddler and banjoist Mike Conant and upright jazz bassist Tim Clough mix all these influences together to produce a distinctive sound, rounded out by guitarist and singer-songwriter Andrew Bohrmann and singer Jane Cooper Pasquarello.

The ensemble Irish Hill, which shares members with the Peterson Project, was originally scheduled to play this concert.
