Half way through its Kickstarter campaign, local band Miners Creek was 87 percent backed. The campaign, created to finishing the band’s second album, “Strong Black Coffee,” will conclude mid-afternoon Sunday, Feb. 14, three days before Miner’s Creek will be featured performers in the Winter Presentation & Concert series at Lincolnville Community Library.

Miners Creek’s sound originates from the bluegrass tradition, but also draws from the folk revival of the 1960s, Latin chords and rhythms, classic rock, Appalachian and old timey tunes — with a sprinkling of jug band.

The band is hoping to exceed its goal of $2,500 in order to pay for additional mastering of the CD, a vinyl run and pay back co-founder Resa Randolph's parents, who loaned some of the money to make the debut album. To donate, and pre-order the new CD, visit search for “Strong Black Coffee” on Kickstarter.
