WALDOBORO — The Waldo Theatre, 916 Main St., hosts an end-of-summer evening of music with Jenner Fox accompanied by Jeremy Elliott Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m.

The Seattle-based folk duo travel from show to show on Xtracycle cargo-bicycles. Their 10-day loop will take them to small theaters starting in Boston, then north through New Hampshire, east across Maine, and then back south along the coast. Why bicycles? “For all the glorious in-betweens that we miss at highway speeds, for less vehicle traffic and more eye contact, for less tanks of gas and more bike paths, for the glory of sore legs and fresh air,” Fox said.

Fox is a storyteller, a peanut butter purist, a second-generation river guide, a cargo bike advocate, a Pacific North Westerner, and that rare kind of songwriter with the ability to “combine the lyricism of Joni Mitchell and the commentary of Neil Young to represent the next generation of singer-songwriters,” according to Grammy-nominated producer Cookie Marenco.

This internationally touring troubadour has moved audiences from the years spent busking, to countless riverside campfires, to small living rooms all across the United States, to the 8,000-capacity Hayden Homes Amphitheater alongside Trampled By Turtles in 2021. His last album, “Planet I’m From” (2021), features musical contributions from Chris “Critter” Eldridge (Punch Brothers) and Brittany Haas (Dave Rawlings Machine, Crooked Still), and was produced by Lawson White (Lake Street Dive). His latest album “Good Luck Road” (released July 2022) is  a concept album documenting the lives of everyday folks in a rural Wyoming town.

“There is something that happens inside a good song. A tootsie roll can take you back to your elementary school playground; a list of baby names becomes a prayer; the voice of a toothless refrigerator man reminds you to say ‘I love you,'” said Fox.

Adult tickets are $10, youth tickets are $5. Tickets are available at waldotheatre.org/pages/music. Concessions, including beer and wine for those 21 and older, will be available at the show. Doors open at 6 p,m. The Waldo is no longer requiring proof of vaccination, and has shifted to masks optional for all visitors.
