Maine musicians Will Brown, George Fowler and David Lewis originally teamed up for a recording project and enjoyed the project and the music so much they formed the band Wildage to take the show on the road. Wildage will be performing at the Camden Library Coffeehouse Thursday, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m.

Admission to the Coffeehouse is $7, $5 for senior citizens and students. Special guests Kat Logan and Jim Loney will join in for a few songs.

Wildage’s members are well known to fans of acoustic and traditional music on the coast of Maine: Fowler on fiddle; Brown on vocals and guitar; and Lewis on vocals and bass. Fowler has been a fiddle mainstay of the Maine contra dance scene for many years with his Blue Hill band, Oakum Bay. He also is a member of The Montville Project, a repertory quartet that recently recorded their second album of essential New England dance tunes.

Brown has performed with Cindy Kallet and Grey Larsen; recorded with Gordon Bok and Anne Dodson; and been a member of The January Men and The Quasimodal Chorus. He also performed as a guest artist at last month’s successful, standing-room-only Library Coffeehouse.

Lewis has played with the Searsmont Street Band, Bel Isle Jazz, Blue Northern, Jeff Lewis Trio and Free Seedlings. He is a songwriter and plays guitar as well as bass. Brown noted that between the Wildage members there resides more than 190 years of accumulated life experience, “a ponderous thought in the hallowed halls of traditional folk music.”

“We do want everyone to know that the evening’s music will include both contemporary and traditional songs; a Robert Burns poem set to music; waltzes and a set each of Maritime jigs; Magdalen Island reels; and polkas. It will be a healthy mix of thoughtful, beautiful and lively music to please the heart and ear. No stones will be left unturned,” he said.

The downtown Camden library hosts live music the first Thursday of the month. The December and January programs will be informal Songswap events, and the Feb. 3 Coffeehouse will feature a concert with Gordon Bok and friends. Tickets for the Bok concert will go on sale at the Wildage concert.
