Waldoboro — St. Paul’s Union Chapel, 1055 Dutch Neck Road, will host the Crownsville Collective for the first concert of its summer season Sunday, June 17, at 3 p.m. Recommended donation is $10 at the door.

The ensemble features three instruments rarely heard in Maine — French hurdy-gurdy, viola da gamba and harpsichord. The musicians, who have have toured in the United States and Europe, are masters of their instruments. Robert Green is an expert in French hurdy-gurdy music from the 17th and 18th centuries. Carolyn Surrick is an eminent viola da gamba player, equally at home in Celtic styles and early music. And Webb Wiggins is a peerless harpsichordist. Together, they are the Crownsville Collective and they make this ancient music come alive.
