Award-winning Maine singer-songwriter Jud Caswell will perform as part of the Concerts for a Cause series to raise funds for Midcoast New Mainers Group and Oasis Free Clinics. Along with guitar, Caswell plays banjo, cittern, whistles and Irish drums. The show is called Morning Cordial Retrospective to mark the release of his album “Keep Walking, Morning Cordial Vol. 1.” At the onset of the pandemic, Caswell would play an original, cover or Irish tune on Facebook to help people feel connected to one another during isolation. All told, Caswell has released 175 videos, so he’ll have plenty of songs to choose from on Saturday.
