Drowsy Maggie to Perform at Deane Center’s Outdoor Stage
Drowsy Maggie includes (from left to right) Carl Conn on fiddle, Bruce Smith on upright bass, Daria Lin-Guelig on concertina, and lead and harmony vocalists Molly Cary and Danny Shipe on guitar.
This Friday, Aug 13, Drowsy Maggie will perform a mix of Americana, old-time, folk, bluegrass and Celtic music, both instrumental and vocal arrangements on the outdoor stage at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. The outdoor stage is located on the Central Avenue side of the building. Rather than starting at 6:15 p.m., this performance will begin at 6:30 p.m.
This free concert is part of the Deane Center’s outdoor series. Donations are appreciated.
The five musicians include Danny Shipe and Molly Cary, both lead and harmony vocalists with Cary on guitar and Shipe on guitar and banjo; Daria Lin-Guelig on hammered dulcimer and concertina; Carl Conn, fiddle, flute and whistles; and Bruce Smith, upright bass.
Lin-Guelig and Conn have been playing together for ten years. Smith has been with them for seven years, Shipe for six years, and Cary for five years.
Some new songs Drowsy Maggie will perform this Friday are Kasey Musgraves’ “Slow Burn”, Steve Winwood’s “Can’t Find My Way Home”, Kasey Chambers’ “Rattlin Bones”, John Paul “J.P” Cormier’s “The Teazer” as well as some new instrumentals and old favorites, such as songs by Nanci Griffith, Brandi Carlile, Neil Young and Patty Loveless.
For this free concert, bring lawn chairs and sit on the grass in front of the outdoor stage or on Central Avenue, which will be closed to traffic between Main Street and the Warehouse Theatre.
