Calling all Bob Marley fans!
Come join us for an evening of uplifting music by the legendary singer, songwriter and activist.
Artistic Director Chris Eastburn notes, "Bob Marley's melodies summonspontaneous singing from the heart. His grooves make you want to dance from your soul and his lyrics calling for the unity of the human family ring as true today as when they were written. Bring your parents and children to sing and dance along with the Family Folk Chorale in this intergenerational celebration of Bob Marley's music."

He can be heard on the albums Kaya, Exodus and Confrontation and he was was with Marley on the Survival Tour, one of Marley’s last before his death in 1981. After Marley’s death, DaCosta continued with the Wailers and he also accompanied many bands including Gladys Knight, Lou Rawls, Aretha Franklin, UB40 and Ray, Goodman & Brown. He is currently writing a book about his years with Bob Marley. You can learn more about him at www.glendacostamusic.com.
Pihcintu, a Passamaquoddy word meaning “when she sings her voice carries far,” is based in Portland, Maine. It is composed of immigrant girls from fifteen different countries many of whom had to flee from war-torn villages and bloodshed. The chorus was established by Con Fullam, an award-winning producer, musician and songwriter, as a way for these girls to connect with one another and build a supportive community. Through the healing power of music, these vulnerable, young women have formed a powerful and permanent bond. Pihcintu was invited to appear on NBC’s Today Show and an excerpt from that performance can be viewed on their website: www.pihcintu.org.
The groups will be backed by a stellar band featuring Glen DaCosta on saxophone, Gary Backstrom on guitar, Justin Kleya on bass, Dow Brain on keys and Leo Ciarimataro on drums.
