MUSIC, FOOD, AND FUN FOR ALL!
with Starcrossed Losers, William Jiordan & Friends
Sunday, August 6 at 4PM
Last summer, we partnered with the Free Range Music Series to put on a free outdoor concert to celebrate 10 years in Belfast. We had so much fun, we’re doing it again! This year will feature stellar performances by Starcrossed Losers and William Joseph Jiordan. We’ll be dishing up John’s Ice Cream and Sweet Henry’s will be onsite with all sorts of delicious eats. Attendees will have the opportunity to work with artist Susan Smith on a community project that will be presented in conjunction with our fall Arrival exhibition. AND there will be plenty of chalk to go around to decorate the building.
Starcrossed Losers is an alt-folk-rock band based out of Portland, ME. Their dynamic performances range in style from stripped-down acoustic balladry and love-lorn parlor laments to old-school rock’n’roll, gritty gypsy-blues and distorted proto-punk. Weaving together these seemingly disparate musical forms with an attitude both emotive and playful, this 6-piece ensemble reflects the angst and longing of spirits bound by human form.
The band is an extraordinary collection of Maine talent, featuring Kyle Morgan of Tumbling Bones, Bridgette Semler of The Soulbenders and Living Daylights, Tyler Lienhardt and Jed Bresette of Tricky Britches, Jimmy Dority of Jimmy Do Right & The Pop Go Boom, and Joe Perullo of Sea for Miles.
William Joseph Jiordan is the musical moniker of Maine musician/vegetable farmer William Giordano. His songs weave mythical New England characters, often farmers and sea folk, into a voice for or the hopeful generosity of humanity. Jiordan will be performing a winter’s worth of new songs and characters accompanied by bassist Ross Gallagher (Luminist, Ross Gallagher), drummer Joe Perullo (Starcrossed Losers, Sea for Miles), and Estelle Poole (Is She?) on guitar, synth, and vocals.
Ever active in a career split between food production and artistic production Jiordan has performed as a member of the Blue Hill-based dance band the Living Daylight, co-founded the folk ensemble O Deer!, collaborated the Terra Diddle Collective and the LEAP Dance Theater, and recently released a live E.P. with the dreamcountry band DYADO.
