Event has passed

    Tapestry Singers presents Castlebay in a lecture performance at the Lincoln Home, 22 River Road, in Newcastle on Sunday, June 2 at 2 p.m.

    The duo, Julia Lane and Fred Gosbee, will present musical stories of Maine: romance, ramblers and rogues, woven with history and humor. The event is free to the public in conjunction with the Tapestry Singers June 15 and 16 concerts “Songs of Maine: A Belated Celebration of Maine's Bicentennial'.”

    Castlebay recently published ‘Bygone Ballads of Maine vol 1- Songs of Ships & Sailors,” a compilation of 165 folk songs gathered from collections made here in Maine between 1900 and 1950. Having explored various international archives, museums and libraries, they have distilled and repaired their findings and present them in an entertaining lecture with musical examples.

    In concert, Castlebay’s wide knowledge and deep cultural roots, their vocal and instrumental skills, and their personable performance style have been appreciated in museums, libraries, schools, arts centers and festivals internationally.
