The Lakeshore House

It is only fitting and right that the summer gigging season should end how it started… at the Lakeshore House in Monson. By then even Rebekah should be able to relax a little, put her feet up, and have an adult beverage while we do our level best to overplay “Bei Mir Bist Du Shein”…

Grand Lake Stream is where my grandfather Lovely was born, it’s where my parents went on their honeymoon, and it’s where I met my wife. There are lots of reasons to love GLS, and the Folk Festival is just one more. It’s an award winning festival, and rightfully so. Come enjoy great food, high-end artisan crafts, great music, and an atmosphere that makes you feel like you were transported back in time. It’s a little bit out of the way, but that’s the idea…

Corinna Gazebo Concert Series

In the heart of where downtown Corinna used to be… there is a beautiful green and a gazebo. We will be playing there on the 25th of July, and two things are guaranteed. First, it will threaten to rain, but it WILL NOT rain…happens every year. Secondly, I will be related to approximately half of the crowd. This also happens every year.

The Lakeshore House

What better place to kick off the 2019 Maine summer gigs than at the Lakeshore House in Monson. With any luck we will have sunshine and a gentle breeze. With fine food, drinks, and a beautiful view of the lake, the Lakeshore House is Maine at it’s finest.

Lakeshore House

If you think the Lakeshore House is nice in June, you have to see it in August.  By then everyone has a nice tan, has mostly recovered from winter and is ready to just sit back and relax.  The beer is colder and the food tastes better... And if you are lucky you might get to see my nephew Max put on a frog catching display.  Put it on your calendar.

It's sort of a tradition for us now to get back to our roots at the end of July.  The GLSFAF is a special festival for lots of reasons.  Besides the fact that it's located in one of the most pristine sports fishing locations on the planet, it happens to be where my Grandfather Lovely was born AND where I met my wife...playing at this very same festival.  So, there's history... and something everyone should experience at least once (a year).  We're playing both days, so plan on finding a place to pitch a tent...

Lakeshore House

An essential part of our summer ever year is playing at the Lakeshore House in Monson.  It's a beautiful spot, great food and drink, and Rebekah is the finest hostess in 40 counties.

We generally set up outside by the lake if weather permits.  But if it's raining, the show goes on... it just moves inside and gets a bit more cozy.
