On Friday, Sept. 16 at 7:30 p.m., the Waldo Theatre will be kicking up its heels with the renowned Maine bluegrass band the Katahdin Valley Boys.

The four members of the band (Wayne Burtt is on hiatus) each brings something unique and wonderful to the stage. Jeff Folger on banjo and vocals calls Sidney home. He delivers superb lead and soaring harmony tenor vocals and provides a traditional hard-driving banjo style. Kip Yattaw on fiddle and vocals is from Port Clyde, where he practices the art of violin making in his home workshop. His musical career spans back to the early 1960s playing guitar in country and rock ‘n’ roll bands but after hearing Mac Wiseman in 1994, he turned to the fiddle and since has had the honor of performing several times with Wiseman. Steve Bixby of Round Pond sings lead and plays the upright bass. He caught the bluegrass bug in 1978 and has performed at numerous bluegrass festivals throughout the Northeast.

The Waldo Theatre is located at 916 Main St./Route 220. Tickets are $12, $10 for senior citizens and children. Reservations can be made by calling 832-6060 and leaving a message or writing to info@theWaldo.org. Tickets also are available at Waltz Pharmacy in Waldoboro.
