Mystery, music at Lincolnville library

Oct 10, 2017
Miners Creek

Lincolnville — The Lincolnville Community Library’s Fall Presentation & Concert series continues Wednesday, Oct. 18, at 7 p.m. sharp at the library, 208 Main St./routes 173/52 in Lincolnville Center.

Author Gin Mackey will be guest speaker. Mackey is the author of “Disappear Our Dead,” a Midcoast Maine murder mystery featuring amateur sleuth and home funeral guide Abby Tiernan. Mackey, who also wrote the madcap comic novel “Suddenly Spring,” is a past president of the writing organization Sisters in Crime/New England. She lives in Owls Head, where she is hard at work on her next novel.

The musical portion of the evening will feature the Rockport-based Miners Creek, which brings a distinctive down-home, Maine-grown voice to bluegrass music. The band’s bluegrass tradition-rooted sound has a heavy sprinkling of folk, Latin, Appalachian, blues and old-timey gospel. Songwriting mother/daughter duo Resa and Emily Randolph play guitar and bass while blending their voices in high, tight harmonies; while husband/dad Whitney joins in on banjo and mandolin; and Emma Theobolds adds an extra vocal layer. The band’s Kickstarter-funded second album, “Strong Black Coffee,” containing a mix of 14 originals, covers and medleys, was released last year.

Tickets, available in advance, are $10. For more information, call Rosey Gerry at 975-5432.
