The folk quartet Well Seasoned will perform at the Lincoln County Democratic Committee’s (LCDC) annual Harvest Dinner at the historic Kings Mills Union Hall, 901 Townhouse Road in Whitefield on Sunday, Oct. 6.

The meal will include hearty soups, chowders, breads, cider, and pies - all made with locally harvested produce - and will kick off at 5 p.m.

We’re so pleased that Well Seasoned has found time in their schedule to join us for this special evening of community,” said Jim Torbert of Whitefield.

Well Seasoned has developed a signature sound that is being heard with increasing frequency in the Midcoast area and is dedicated to playing a broad range of American folk music on acoustic instruments, including songs by Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, Pete Seeger, Gordon Bok, and many others. Its members include Pixie Lauer, a fixture of the MidCoast folk music scene for years, who contributes her songwriting skills as well as a deep commitment to the American Folk Catalogue; Dan Townsend,  a longtime member of The Young Geezers, a folk trio from northeast Pennsylvania, who has made Maine his retirement home; Del Merritt, who lends his tenor voice to two area choral groups, St. Cecilia Chamber Choir and The Nor’easters; and Judy Nielsen, formerly of Inanna Sisters in Rhythm, who adds her considerable percussion skills to the mix.
