Maine's own Katahdin Valley Boys will return to town with another fun evening of traditional and contemporary bluegrass and gospel music Saturday, Aug. 10, at 7 p.m. at the Odd Fellows Hall, Watts Avenue just off Main Street/Route 131.

The Katahdin Valley Boys have been thrilling audiences around Maine and northern New England since their blending of talents in 1998. The Maine Academy of Country Music named the group Best Bluegrass Band of the Year several times, most recently in 2012. The band's musicians are: founding member Jeff Folger from Sidney on banjo; Kip Yattaw from Port Clyde on fiddle; Ken Brooks of Athens on rhythm and lead guitar; and Steve Bixby of Round Pond on upright bass.

Admission is $10, and refreshments will be available. The hall is handicap accessible. For more information, call Yattaw at 372-9988 or visit
