KINGFIELD — Kingfield will host an outdoor concert featuring the international icon of American folk music, Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul and Mary with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra conducted by Grammy winner Lucas Richman.

Stookey will play some well-known and beloved tunes that have made him an American legend — songs like The Wedding Song (“There is Love”), “Puff the Magic Dragon” and more. The BSO will play a selection of songs with Stookey, and will also perform an eclectic set of all-American pops and patriotic compositions by Gershwin, Copland, Rodgers, Williams and others.

Opening performers include Erica Brown and the Bluegrass Connection, Nadia and Jocko, the Maranacook String Band and the Western Mountain Trash Can Band.

There will be fireworks at the end of the evening.

Guests can bring a picnic or buy food from a local vendor.

The Festival of the Arts in the village is set for 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Visitors can meet artists and artisans, and interact with them as they exhibit photography, jewelry, stained glass, blown glass, paintings, metal works, wooden bowls and spinning yarn. There will be live music throughout the day.

A dozen of Kingfield’s galleries and museums will open their doors Friday night, June 29. Three venues will feature live music: Tom and Mali Obomsawin at the Village Gallery at the Farm Cottage Gallery, Andy and Ellie Buckland at Grand Central Station and the Gawler Family at the Schoolhouse Gallery.

Admission is free for the Festival of the Arts, June 30, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and for the POPS Friday Artwalk, 5-8 p.m. Tickets for the Kingfield POPS concert cost $20 in advance or $25 at the gate. Children 17 and younger are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Gate opens at 4:30 p.m.
