Music

From classical to traditional to rock, you can find an event to fit your musical taste in Maine. The state's musical heritage includes the Bangor Symphony Orchestra, one of the country's oldest continuously operating orchestras and well-known musicians such as Dick Curless, Don McLean and Noel Paul Stookey (the Paul of Peter, Paul and Mary). Singer/songwriters from Maine include Ray Lamontagne, Ellis Paul and Patti Griffin, and Maine bands include the Rustic Overtones.

Performance Halls

You'll find homegrown talent and nationally known artists at small-town venues, such as singer/songwriter Carol Noonan's renovated barn, the Stone Mountain Arts Centerin Brownfield. Indie performers rock smaller performance halls, while acoustic artists play coffee houses and wine bars. Musical theater and dinner concerts are also popular in the state. You can listen to classical music or attend a Klezmer, choral or chamber concert.

Music Festivals

Enjoy blues, jazz, folk or bluegrass at festivals statewide, such as the Ossipee Valley Music Festival. If you like traditional tunes, you can find the music of Acadian, Swedish, Franco-American, Caribbean and Russian cultures.

Free Concerts

Many local bands perform free music at fairs, festivals, and outdoor concerts as well as L.L. Bean's free outdoor summer entertainment program. Non-profits often present concerts in historic venues, gardens and park settings with admission by donation.
