CAMDEN — The Camden Opera House, 29 Elm St., will present Roan Yellowthorn in concert to benefit Finding Our Voices 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 25. Maine duo Gentle Temper will open this limited capacity show.

Roan Yellowthorn is the music project of singer, songwriter and Camden native Jackie Lee McLean. Whether solo, playing keys and singing; duo with her husband and multi-instrumentalist Shawn Strack; or full band as featured in this show, Roan Yellowthorn offers compelling indie pop, driven by lyrics that reveal both a poetic soul and cathartic courage. Roan Yellowthorn’s most recent album, 2021’s “Another Life,” has received wide notice; and McLean scored the feature-length documentary “She,” an official selection at last year’s Cannes International Film Festival and winner of the 2022 Impact DOCS Award.

Gentle Temper, the Maine duo of Ryan Meier and Marion Earley, returns to the opera house, having launched the popular SoundCheck series in the summer of 2020. The New Americana indie folk artists are nominees for New Artist of the Year (2018) and Folk Artist of the Year (2019 and 2020) at the Boston Music Awards. They recently released “Same Blood,” an EP.

This concert will benefit Finding Our Voices, the grassroots and Maine-based nonprofit organization powered by survivors of domestic abuse. FOV founder/president Patrisha McLean and a number of the women featured in its project, on display at Camden Public Library through March, will introduce the show.

Choose-your-own-seat tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day-of-show, available via or by calling (207) 236-3154. A pair of distancing seats will be placed on either side of each ticket(s) purchase, and masks are encouraged while in the building. For more information about Finding Our Voices, visit
