Mexicali Blues is thrilled to be working with the Hidden Valley Nature Center as a sponsor for the 2015 Live Edge Music Festival! This fabulous Maine festival will boast awesome music, delicious local food, refreshing craft beer, games for the whole family, and tons of fun!
This fest would be a hopping hootenanny anywhere, but it is particularly special as it takes place at and supports the Hidden Valley Nature Center, a wonderful organization at one of the most magical and ecologically diverse pieces of unspoiled land in Midcoast Maine. With nearly 30 miles of multi-use trails and a beautiful pond at its heart, the Nature Center is a environment and resource that we are SO grateful to have in our veritable backyard!
Throughout the year, Hidden Valley offers educational opportunities related to sustainability and ecology, trails and cabins for facilitating your own immersive experience in nature, and a showcase of innovative forestry practices intended to motivate loggers and landowners to adopt sustainable forestry practices. In fact, last year they were awarded the 2014 Outstanding Tree Farmer of the Year award by the American Tree Farm Society!
This year’s Live Edge Festival is sure to be THE best yet, with an unbeatable musical lineup features an eclectic collection of 4 spectacular bands:
Redbird – a collaboration of exceptionally talented players steeped in the traditions of folk, blues, bluegrass and more.
Oen Kennedy – award winning singer songwriter, naturalist, and master bird whistler
Primo Cubano – Maine’s premier Cuban dance band is guaranteed to get you up and moving.
Inanna, Sisters in Rhythm – has been moving audiences with their deep rhythms since 1989. Through percussion and voice Inanna is dedicated to the universal language of music.
There will be delicious local food and drink provided by Sheepscot General, Jyang Lee Kitchen, Allagash, The Liberal Cup, and Geary’s. Food & drink are not included in the ticket sale, so remember to bring cash!
