Gionfriddo, McFarland(s) in Lincolnville series

Oct 06, 2016
Mike McFarland gives The Postman Cometh its titular inspiration.

Lincolnville — Nanette H. Gionfriddo will be guest speaker in Lincolnville Community Library’s Autumn Presentations & Concerts series Wednesday evening, Oct. 19. The program will begin 7 p.m. sharp at the library, 208 Main St./routes 173/52 in Lincolnville Center.

Gionfriddo Nanette runs “the great little book store at the Beach,” Beyond the Sea, and will talk about her relationship to books and art and how that all came about. Although not a published writer herself, her journey to Beyond the Sea is quite entertaining.

The evening’s concert will be delivered by The Postman Cometh, fronted by Mike McFarland (Islesboro’s favorite postman). The Postman Cometh presents new looks at old favorites, from Hank Williams to Little Feat to the Stones … with the occasional standard thrown in, as well. McFarland leads the way on guitar and vocals, supported by son Max on his 11-string electric bass and Bill Hahn on keyboards. Mike has been playing with bands in the area since the days of the 10-4 Diner; Max is outstanding, both on his electric bass and playing jazz on a stand-up; and Hahn spent much of his youth on classical training, but took a turn somewhere.

Tickets are $10; to reserve in advance, call Rosey Gerry at 975-5432.
