The Pine Tree state prepares to celebrate the season with Roochie Toochie and the Ragtime Shepherd Kings. I smile just writing the name of this popular and quirky band touring Maine this fall. High energy combined with fiddle players, ukuleles, Hawaiian guitars and quite an assortment of mini-instruments are guaranteed to get audiences on their feet. Their rousing performance will rock the bucolic Blue Hill peninsula at a special performance at the renowned Bagaducc Music Lending Library, home to one of the nation’s largest repositories of sheet music. The band is planning to showcase Maine themed songs and sheet music covers. Wait until you see what they come up with! The double win here is the location, for the Blue Hill Peninsula is true gem featuring rolling hills bordered by the sea, and quintessential Maine villages offering no shortage of glorious fall color. Leaf peepers take note, crowds and traffic are non-existent.
