Meteora in the Amphitheatre
Camden — Meteora, an acoustic trio comprised of veteran Midcoast musicians Will Brown, Jim Loney and Kat Logan, will perform Thursday, Aug. 2 starting at 7 p.m. in the Camden Amphitheatre as part of the adjacent Camden Public Library’s summer series. The concert series is free; attendees should bring blankets or lawn chairs for comfortable seating. The rain venue is the library’s Picker Room, so the concert is a go rain or shine. The library’s A Renascence Summer series is supported by The First Bancorp.
Meteora was formed in 2011 and plays an eclectic array of original songs and folk ballads, as well as traditional songs and original arrangements. Its name translates from the Greek as “suspended in air.” Logan and Loney are a singer/songwriter couple from Friendship. Logan has a crystal clear voice and plays piano, accordion, banjo and guitar, as well as teaching voice, piano, and guitar. She has performed folk, country and blues music throughout New England for the past 20 years. Loney has performed Delta blues and R&B for many years, and played Cuban son music with the band Primo Cubano. He plays guitar, banjo and hand percussion instruments.
Brown is from Lincolnville and has been playing and singing folk music around fine campfires and in concert since 1963. He plays guitar, laud, banjo and frame-drum percussion and does handy sprints on the cornet. He has been recording with Gordon Bok, Cindy Kallet, Grey Larsen, and Anne Dodson during the past 30 years. Logan also has recorded with Bok; both Brown and Logan recorded songs on the 2009 Grammy-nominated folk album “Singing Through The Hard Times — A Tribute to Utah Phillips.”
