Meteora opens Library Coffeehouse year
Camden — Meteora was formed in 2011 and plays a fascinating, enjoyable and eclectic array of original songs and folk ballads, as well as traditional songs and original arrangements. The trio is made up of venerable local musicians Will Brown, Kat Logan and Jim Loney.
Meteora, whose name translates from the Greek as “suspended in air,” will perform Thursday, Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. for the Library Coffeehouse of the downtown Camden Public Library. Admission is $7, $5 for senior citizens and students.

Loney also is a singer/songwriter and has performed Delta Blues and R&B for many years. Loney also was attracted to Cuban son music and played with the band Primo Cubano. He also plays guitar, banjo and hand percussion instruments.
Brown of Lincolnville 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; and both Brown and Logan recorded songs on the 2009 Grammy-nominated folk album “Singing Through The Hard Times: A Tribute to Utah Phillips.”
