We made the Labor Day weekend turn from a calendar standpoint, but the weather, tourists and traffic along the Commercial Street corridor of Portland's working waterfront signal another many weeks of seasonal buzz around Maine!
Our final full moon music and party cruise of the summer has sold out for tomorrow night but wanted to let you know that since our last email, the Trio has been booked to play in historic Dunbarton, NH this Saturday afternoon the 17th.
"Where's Dunbarton?" some of you may wonder. Well, according to a Boston Globe report, it's the CENTER of NEW ENGLAND, based on a Boston University study using a mathematical algorithm considering the six-state region's boundaries, irregular coastlines and islands. So join the Trio - smack-dabbish in the middle of New England - from 2-4 pm at the Town Bandstand to celebrate Old Home Day in a town that was incorporated in 1765. More info on the day and town at: www.dunbartonnh.org
Speaking of history and tradition, our two Band shows at the Cumberland Fair will happen on Sunday, September 25th and Wednesday September 28th! Love Fall Fair season!
Looking Back - Looking Ahead - What's Next
Last month, we celebrated Dan Fogelberg's birthday with hundreds of fellow fans of his music in five special venues, surrounded by spectacular scenery. This is a picture taken before our show at the Blair Hill Inn on Sunday, August 14th in Greenville, Maine along Moosehead Lake.
We have many shows ahead in 2016, including Evening of Dan Fogelberg Music concerts, but I'm doing some 2017 planning and thought I'd ask for some input! I released my first original music CD, Part of Your Heart, way back in 1991 and my most recent, and 8th original music CD, The Dust Never Settles, in 2014. If you have original music song requests - songs you'd like to hear me, the trio and/or band perform live in 2017 - please send me an email at email@example.com
Here are the album names and covers for a visual memory prompt! I have music from most of these available to listen to as samples on my website at www.doncampbellmusic.com/music 2017 is going to be an exciting year. Building new shows and a new website and youtube channel!
The Dust Never Settles
Flowerchild with the Blues
The Mashed Potato Swing
I Own the Road
