Midcoast music promoters Mishara Music is bringing Barnaby Bright back to the Camden Opera House Friday, June 28, at 7:30 p.m. The duo will be joined by special guests Chris Ross from Hancock County and Vermont native Caitlin Canty at the downtown venue.

After their successful Valentine’s Day show, award-winning singer/songwriters Barnaby Bright and Ross return for an encore performance. Joining them for this appearance will be newly-signed Mishara Music artist Canty, with artist introductions and additional words to celebrate the occasion by Camden poet Dave Morrison. After the show, guests are invited to mingle with the artists, enjoy a free Stone Fox Farm Creamery ice cream tasting and sip some joe served by Camden’s Zoot Coffee.

This exceptional artist showcase promises an evening filled with unique instrumentation, powerful harmonies, intelligent lyrics and genuine warmth on stage. Each artist has been featured on the local airwaves of WERU and Maine Public Broadcasting’s “In Tune by Ten,” as well as numerous stations and stages across the country. Their music captivates listeners everywhere and continues to draw increased attention and rave reviews from fans and some of the top critics in the industry.

Barnaby Bright — the husband-and-wife team of Nathan and Becky Bliss, a classically trained vocalist — can be found on streets as far away as London or Amsterdam, and as remote as St. Paris, Ohio, toting their massive haul of instruments including multiple guitars, harmonium, banjo, ukulele, floorboard bass, thumb pianos and keyboards. They have been touring nationwide to support their new full-length record Mishara Music release, “The Longest Day.”

Ross brings to mind Ray LaMontagne, another Maine contemporary, but also reveals a touch of Nashville, where he recorded both his solo albums. He began his musical journey with local band Stiff Whisker and the Driftwood Kids; making music has been his full-time gig since the release of “The Steady Stumble” in 2011. Last year, he released his second album, “Halfway to Wonderland,” on Mishara Music.

New York City-based Canty contributes her pure, nuanced singing to several bands in addition to maintaining an active tour schedule of her own. Her current collaborations include co-writing and singing backing vocals for several bands including Darlingside, a string rock band; and serving as one half of the duo Down Like Silver with Peter Bradley Adams. She releases her sophomore album “Golden Hour” this month on Camden’s Mishara Music label. The album blends her folk roots with a Western tone.

Born near Boston, Morrison is a writer of novels, short stories and poetry who spent years playing guitar in rock ‘n’ roll bars in Boston and New York City. His poetry and short stories have been published in FRiGG, Thieves Jargon, Rattle, Void, Rumble, Mad Hatters Review, Juked, Laura Hird, Psychopoetica and other fine magazines; and he has published eight collections of poetry and two novels.

Tickets are $15, available in advance at the Camden Town Office weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; or by calling 470-7066. Sponsorship for the artists is being provided by Abigail’s Inn, C.A.R.S Automotive and The Hawthorn Inn.
