The music of Kathy Bennett and Thom Perkins, Bennett & Perkins, is an exercise in storytelling with many of their songs set in the greater Conway area, their home base. Their songs share lost loves, lost lives and real life adventure, coupled with haunting harmonies and memorable arrangement of vocals and guitar. Whether it's a song about traveling to Cape Breton to a country dance or a love story between a man and his long-lost wife, their songs evoke a strong emotional response from the audience.

Maine Islands Concert Series

It's always nice when a plan comes together. We like to spend our summers sailing along the coast of Maine, and camping up around Bar Harbor. So we're lining up a series of concerts and events in our favorite summer places.

First off, WERU, our favorite community radio station, is making us their featured artists for the week of June 24, 2013. More details to come but you can look forward to lots of Bennett & Perkins on 89.9 FM, and on air giveaways of our new CD, House On Fire, and maybe even some concert tickets to some upcoming shows. We'll be finishing up that week with an on-air interview on Fri. June 28 at 8:30am. If you don't live near their Blue Hills, Maine studios, you can stream them live at www.weru.org. Their Sat. morning Folk Show is not to be missed, and their programming is the most eclectic around. Nothing sounds more like summer to us than WERU on the little transistor radio on our sailboat!

Next stop on our tour - Great Cranberry Island for Sun. June 30th at 7pm.

Then on to North Haven - on Sat. July 13th. We'll be playing a show at the Waterman's Community Center. We discovered this little gem of a performance venue last summer and promised to return - and we thank them for inviting us to perform. More info online for them at www.watermans.org.

While still in the works, we are anticipating a late July show on the island of Frenchboro. And we're also researching the possibility of  doing something on Little Cranberry Island which hosts concerts each summer.

Rounding our summer are two other Maine concerts for us - the Side Door Coffee House in Brunswick on June 21 and the Bradley Park Music Series on July 23, outdoors in Fryeburg under the stars by the Gazebo.

Join us in Vacationland this summer!
