240 Strings presents its season-opening streaming show featuring Wayne Smith, cellist of the Portland Piano trio, who will be playing an enchanting program of Bach pieces. Smith has appeared with the New Jersey Chamber Music Society, the Ritz Chamber Players and the Manhattan Chamber Players, among other ensembles. His 1996 debut recital at the Kennedy Center earned him critical acclaim. Smith has recorded and performed with The Moody Blues, Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Anthony Krizan of the Spin Doctors. Cleary he’s one fine cello fellow.

Old Town native Patty Griffin has been living in Austin, Texas, for decades but still very much cares about Maine music venues. That’s why a portion of each ticket for her series of streaming shows will help support the Opera House at Boothbay Harbor and Portland’s State Theatre. The singer-songwriter will be playing a trio of shows live from the Continental Club in Austin.
