The concerts will take place either at the Maine Maritime Museum, or at private outdoor areas revealed to ticket holders following the purchase of tickets. The concerts will be presented outdoors to audiences of no more than 100 people. Per CDC guidelines and requirements from the state of Maine, audience members will be spaced at least six feet apart, and staff will enforce mask-wearing, distancing, hand sanitizing and other health and safety measures at all events. For most shows, there will be two performances on each day – a 3 p.m. afternoon show and a 6 p.m. evening show.

Pat Colwell and the Soul Sensations’ show at Maine Maritime Museum will highlight the music of the Etta James, known for hits like “At Last,” “I’d Rather Go Blind” and “Tell Mama.” The band will also perform soul classics from Sam and Dave, the Supremes, Marvin Gaye, the Temptations and Aretha Franklin.

Sept. 20 will bring a show from Maine’s The Mallett Brothers Band, who perform their own brand of independent rock and roll, americana and country.
