Rockland — The fourth annual “Midcoast Maine has Talent …or Not!” is set for Tuesday, June 10, beginning 6 p.m. at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main St. The local talent variety show is produced by North Atlantic Blues Festival as a fundraiser for Rockland Main Street, Inc.

The lineup will feature some of previous years’ talents, as well as some new performers. Performing will be Raised by Wolves, Katie Paquin, Lynn Archer, Tom Albury, Johnny & Louise, Cole Barbour and Aaron Clark, Vicky Andres and Max McFarland, Tom Crutcher, Galactic Seagull and Gordon Page.

Page, named executive director of Rockland Main Street, Inc. in March, will be bringing his ukulele to the Strand stage … and he plans to have company.

“I’m hoping to have Brianna Bebb, my counterpart in Belfast, join me, as she plays ukulele too,” he said of the Our Town Belfast executive director.

Also providing entertainment will be Benjamin, who has made a habit of wearing one of his “blues suits” for the emcee gig.

Admission to the family fun event will be $10, $5 for students younger than 18, at the door.
