The Friends of Music Concert Series, an outreach program of the First Congregational Church at 55 Elm St./Route 1, will welcome back Mes Amis, a Maine-based Gypsy jazz quartet, to the church sanctuary for a concert Sunday, Aug. 14, at 4 p.m.

Mes Amis features guitarist, vocalist and composer Steve Lynnworth; Shane Ellis on clarinet and saxophone; Harry Richter on rhythm guitar; and Wells Gordon on upright bass. They play an infectious mix of traditional Gypsy, Latin and American jazz standards, along with many original compositions.

A reception will follow the concert in the church’s Pilgrim Room with light refreshments and an opportunity to meet and discuss the music with the musicians. As always, the Friends of Music concert is free and open to the public, although donations to sustain the program will be cheerfully accepted at the door. For more information, call 236-4821.
