Rockland — Harbor Square Gallery kicks off the new year and its sixth season of musical events during the winter Sunday afternoon, Jan. 14, with a show featuring the Ale House String Band; and hosts John and Rachel Nicholas.

The Ale House String Band is a trio of Brian Dunn on mandolin and vocals; April Reed-Cox on cello and vocals; and Oren Robinson on guitar and vocals. They perform an eclectic mix of acoustic music both traditional and contemporary. Singer/songwriters John and Rachel Nicholas are well known as the musical hosts of the series, which began shortly after they moved to the Midcoast in 2012 at the request of friend and gallery owner Tom O’Donovan.

Harbor Square Gallery, 374 Main St., offers a beautiful, intimate space with great acoustics. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. and the show starts at 2 p.m. Admission is $12 at the door; seats may be reserved by calling the gallery at 594-8700.
