IN THE PATH OF YOUNG BULLS: AN ODYSSEY ON AMERICA’S CONTINENTAL DIVIDE TRAIL

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 27 @ 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

All are invited to hear Lincolnville author Tom Jamrog speak about his new book, In the Path of Young Bulls: An Odyssey on America’s Continental Divide Trail, on Tuesday, Feb.27, 2018 at 6:00 PM at the Camden Public Library.
In 2013, the 63-year-old Jamrog completed a 5-month long backpacking journey over the Rocky Mountains through New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana. In the Path of Young Bulls is the story of that desolate, yet majestic 2,500-mile journey, an effort achieved in the company of hiking partners half his age. Tom wrote the initial manuscript of the book on an iPhone while hiking. The 267-page book features over 50 full-color photographs and also serves as a resource for section and long distance hikers for planning their own adventures.
Tom is a Maine Guide, directing wilderness-related activities through Uncle Tom’s Guided Adventures, is and past president of the Maine Association of School Psychology. Tom earned the Triple Crown award from the American Long Distance Hiking Association in 2014 after completing thru-hikes of the Appalachian, Pacific Crest, and Continental Divide Trails. A book signing follows.

COFFEEHOUSE: GUS LA CASSE AND PETER LINDQUIST

THURSDAY, MARCH 1 @ 7:00 PM

Described as a folk fiddler with both speed and savage energy, Gus La Casse’s repertoire reflects his innovative spirit and dedication to the Cape Breton and Acadian fiddle traditions, playing both standards of the genre and his original material. $10 at the door. Doors open at 6:30.

Based in Downeast Maine, Gus maintains an active performance schedule as a solo artist and with other musicians. Gus’ music has also taken him beyond Maine. He was the 2014 student in residence at The Acadia School of Traditional Music, appearing on the Canadian international television broadcast from the Congrès Mondial Acadien 2014. He traveled to Ireland as part of the Young Tradition Vermont touring group in 2016, and has enjoyed playing the legendary Club Passim in Cambridge, MA.

Peter Lindquist is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has toured extensively in the U.S. and Canada, and has also performed in England, Spain and France. His songwriting includes elements of bluegrass, folk and country music, often telling stories of the American experience. After many years away, Peter returned home to Maine, where he continues to perform and record, “fronting” his own band and working as a sideman and accompanist.

Although they come from different traditions, their collaboration packs a high intensity, performing with dynamic interplay between the fiddle and guitar. Peter and Gus interpret old and original tunes with a verve that makes for a highly entertaining show for all to enjoy.
