UUCB Concerts for a Cause will host Bold Riley on Saturday, February 4, 2023 at 7:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick.
Concerts for a Cause brings top-notch concerts to the Greater Brunswick area while raising money for local charities. This season’s series will benefit the Brunswick Area Teen Center and Maine Family Planning.
Bold Riley is a folk quintet hailing from western Maine and known for beautiful melodies and full vocal harmonies, uplifting originals, and a joyful reimagining of traditional tunes and covers. Fiddle, guitar, banjo, accordion, bass and percussion provide a wide range of instrumentation for listeners. Band members Michael Hayashida, John Gunn, Julia Edwards, Erin Sampson and Dennis Boyd take turns singing lead, and a strong sense of community drives the energy of their music.
In 2019, the band released their first full-length album, “Kinship,” which was recorded mixed, and mastered by Jud Caswell at Frog Hollow Studio. The album showcases a refined list of originals peppered with a few key covers. The result is truly Bold Riley: family, love, and hope.
As an added bonus, Jud Caswell, who is an award-winning singer-songwriter himself, will be joining Bold Riley for a couple numbers in the concert.
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Students/Children $10. Available at the church office, Guld of Maine Books, or online at https://ticketstripe.com/boldriley.
