Rockland — Southern Maine singer/songwriter Rob Duquette will perform Friday, April 20; and Lincolnville’s Will Brown returns Saturday, April 21, at Rock City Café, 316 Main St.

Duquette gained national attention as part of the jazz-folk-pop group Cactus Highway in the early 2000s. The Midcoast may know him for his day job — bringing his original children's music to schools, festivals and libraries across the Northeast. This gig, he said, will be “just the grownup stuff.” Duquette forges an indie-folk singer/songwriter sound, incorporating American, African and Caribbean-influenced rhythms.

Brown has been playing with other well-known Maine musicians since the early ‘80s and is known for his tasty finger-style guitar work. His evening will include a mix original arrangements of folk, Americana, traditional and transatlantic songs and tunes. He encourages folks to sing along because it’s more fun for all … and helps him recall the lyrics at times.

The music runs from 7 to 9 p.m. both nights. 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.
