CHESTERVILLE — Friends of the Chesterville Center Meeting House will host its annual fundraising concert set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 12. The concert will feature The Wiles, a trio of acoustic musicians Ellie Buckland, Mali Obamsawin and Isa Burke, all of whom have recently studied at the Berklee School of Music in Boston, according to a news release from Friends.

For the past three years the Meeting House, a nonprofit organization, has succeeded in meeting its annual operating costs largely through the proceeds generated by a concert featuring talented musicians who are donating their performance.

This year’s performers, The Wiles, play a variety of American roots music, including bluegrass, folk, old-time, blues and contemporary indie folk-rock using guitar, banjo, fiddle, upright bass, and the tight harmonies of their rich voices. They have played at folk festivals and urban venues, as well as throughout Maine.

An open jam will preceed the concert at 6:30 p.m., where anyone can participate. The annual concert is staged by the Chesterville Center Union Meeting House board, who seek to revitalize the historic building and re-purpose it for future generations to use as a community resource for events of all kinds. This year’s planned events include a geology presentation, a slide show of a local couple’s historic cross-country canoe trek, a quilt, axe and old tool exhibit, a presentation on the history of the Chesterville Linscott Family, and a children’s reading program.

The Center Meeting House is at the corner of the Borough and Zion’s Hill Roads in Chesterville. Admission is by donation. For more information, call 620-4137 or visit
