Jud Caswell and Alfred Lund in Concert

September 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Crow Town Gallery 406 South Lubec Rd
Lubec, ME United States
+ Google Map
$15 – $20

Starting the day being invaded by pirates from Eastport, Lubec will be in a festive mood on Saturday, September 1. Among the musical events, Cobscook Bay Music and the Crow Town Gallery will present Maine musicians Jud Caswell and Alfred Lund in concert. Although he's known for his Bath and Brunswick appearances at Byrnes Irish Pub, Jud's concert performances are a completely different musical experience. They include banjo picking, Irish drinking songs, a rack of acoustic instruments, and a deep catalog of award-winning originals. He’s often compared to James Taylor and David Wilcox, but his songs draw on a long musical history and wide-ranging influences from jazz and Piedmont blues to contemporary folk and rock. Winner of many song writing awards, Jud has opened for the Americana trio Red Molly, among others.
