NotesSorcha Cribben-Merrill is a singer-songwriter from Maine with a voice of unexpected power and depth of presence. Her stirring songs are steeped in indie folk, blues, jazz and soul. From haunting ballads to charming vignettes to funk grooves, her songs unveil “a suite of musical styles that shows a wide-ranging songwriting ability. . . witty verses with smart rhymes.” (Portland Phoenix) Downeast Magazine offers: “It’s refreshing to hear a record devoted to her tranquil side – it only underscores the crazy range of one of Maine’s most versatile troubadours. And there’s nothing quiet about that.”

Address118 High St, Farmington, ME 04938
NotesDenny Breau is returning to the Farmington Historical Society’s North Church at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7. Doors open at 6 p.m. for a Pie Social. Breau has put together an evening of holiday music from around the world as well as traditional favorites and sing-alongs as he loves audience participation. The night’s guests will include LA’s power house chanteuse Deb Morin as well as Maine’s own country stars Malinda Liberty (“Maine Christmas Song”) and “Mr. Bass” Frank Coffin, as well as the lovely and talented Ann Breau on flute. Breau started playing guitar when he was 9 and was performing professionally by his early teens. During more than 30 years as a full-time musician, he has performed with many well-known artists and picked alongside outstanding guitarists, including Bryan Sutton, Harvey Reid, J.P. Cormier, Pat Donohue, Dan Crary and Steve Kaufman. Breau was a member of roots music trio Turkey Hollow with Tom Rowe and Tom’s son Dave starting in 1998. Since Tom’s death in early 2004, Denny and Dave have continued to perform as Turkey Hollow on a limited basis. Breau was inducted into the Maine Country Music Hall of Fame in 2004, the youngest inductee in the history of the organization. In addition to an active solo career, he gives private guitar lessons and teaches music clinics. He also fronts the Denny Breau Trio. Both in solo and trio performances, musical boundaries disappear as he takes his music to wherever the joy and spirit of the moment leads him. Breau is a triple threat: a consummate picker, evocative songwriter and a singer with a ”voice that is warm and inviting but completely unpretentious — much like the singer himself,” according to Lucky Clark. Mainers have long considered Breau a “must-see,” but they are happy to share a favorite son with those “from away.” The North Church is at 118 High St. Tickets are $15 for the general population, $10 for high school and college students, $5 for elementary students. Call for reservations at 207-778-2006.

Notes"Bad Friday" Dance party! El Malo is a musical collective specializing in the sounds of Latin dance music blended with jazz, hiphop, funk, soul, and progressive rock influences. With fresh sounding tributes to classic Latin artists and energetic original material courtesy of a lineup featuring drum kit/Latin percussion, electric guitar, bass, vocals and horns, we bring the party to any event. On El Malo's first (self titled) release, a low-fi Latin Jazz session recorded live in Brunswick, Maine; the Portland Phoenix published a complementary review, calling the release, in part: "gritty and nasty in some interesting ways" and "As a whole, this album is a piece of genuinely different music-making with Latin and gypsy flavors you won't find often in Portland."

NotesA dynamic band spanning styles from roots to contemporary blues, this driving 4-piece band is sure to scratch your blues itch. The band is fronted by the combo of musical power houses guitarist and vocalist Dave 'Fish' Bottom, and Chris Velletri on tenor sax and vocals. This powerful duo is backed by one of the tightest rhythm sections around consisting of Steve Kaulback on drums and vocals and bassist Marty Lynch. Dave Bottom – Guitar and Vocals Dave picked up his first guitar from a dime store and started teaching himself to play. After flirting with pop music Dave was introduced to blues via the famed British Invasion. That influence underlies the bluesy soloing that Dave brings to his playing; feisty blues steeped in traditional idioms with modern aggression. Dave has performed with LA East, St Amand, Blue Sky Project, Blues Tonight, Maxwell Street and the Voodoo Clowns. Dave is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame. Marty Lynch – Bass and Vocals Marty has been playing bass since the late 80's when he was in an original Americana band, currently called Comanchero, out of Boston. In 2003 he moved to Maine and began playing with Bonnie Edwards and the Practical Cats. He continues to frequent blues jams in the area and current plays with the Blues Mafia, Bluzology, the Voodoo Clowns., Matt and the Barnburners, Luther James and the River Kings and Bonnie Edwards. He plays a combination of upright electric and regular electric bass. Marty is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame. Chris Velletri – Sax and Vocals A New York native, Chris started playing the sax in the third grade. His earliest musical influences include: Benny Carter, Illinois Jacquet, Thelonious Monk, Art Pepper, and Zoot Sims. After college, he relegated his horn to the back of his closet. After a thirty-five-year layoff, Chris got sax out in 2017, and hasn’t looked back. Bitten hard by the blues bug, he bought himself a tenor saxophone and joined the Voodoo Clowns. Steve Kaulback – Drums and Vocals The son of a Navy Commander, Steve started his musical journey in Texas in 1963 singing and drumming. After hearing Albert King’ Live Wire/Blues Power album he knew he was hooked for life. His bands have included: Cottonmouth Blues Band, Arlo West and the LA Bluesmen, The Pinecasters, Juke Joint Devils, Continental Shakedown, Mike Hayward and the Blue Lions, Dave Mello Trio, and the Voodoo Clowns. Steve is a member of the Maine Blues Hall of Fame and is recognized by the Maine Blues Heritage Foundation Museum.
