Rock City Café, 316 Main St., will host an MCMA Songwriters' Jam Night Friday, July 1; and present Happy Folk Saturday, July 2. The music will run from 7 to 9 p.m. both nights.

Midcoast Music Academy is holding its first Songwriters' Workshop Summer Camp the week of June 27 through July 1. Students age 11 to 17 will spend the week writing and recording original songs, which they will perform at the free open mic style event at Rock City. Everyone is invited to attend.

Happy Folk comprises a rotating bandwagon of friends and family that brings infectious joy to any event they are a part of. Songwriters Nik Hasenfus and Aria Zarnoski attempt to dissolve the boundaries created by the performing arts, combining their ambitions of authentic relationships as well as similarly natural genres of music. This current core duo plays old favorites and presents new original material in an effort to make everyone leaves satisfied, hopeful and happy.

Food is available until closing. For more information on these and other events happening at the coffeebar/cafe, call 594-4123 or find it on Facebook.
