TURNER — The Cabin Fever Concert Series featuring Auburn native Dave Rowe is set for 7 p.m. Saturday, April 9, at the First Universalist Church of Turner Center.

The concert is a fundraiser to support music education in Turner — specifically, the purchase of musical instruments for area school students and also recordings for the Turner Library’s music collection.

Rowe grew up with folk music flowing through his veins. The son of a member of a folk trio, there was always a sort of expectation that Rowe would become a professional musician, which he did at the age of 15.

With fifteen critically-acclaimed recordings under his belt by himself and with his various bands and a career in the music business that has endured for some 27 years, Rowe is a force to be reckoned with. A long-time staple of pubs and music halls throughout New England, he has spent more than half of his life playing sing-alongs.

He has decided its time to take his well-honed solo show on the road to concert halls and festivals around the U.S. and Canada.

When Rowe is not touring, he can be found writing songs on his back porch at his home in Portland, working on the house or in his small yard, enjoying the sea air, and walking or bicycling and enjoying the beauty of Maine’s largest city.

The First Universalist Church of Turner Center puts on four, monthly Cabin Fever Concerts each year in February, March, April and May with all proceeds going to benefit music education and endeavors in the area. Costs of concerts vary from “by donation” to ticketed events such as this one.

Tickets cost $10 and can be purchased in advance from Brown Paper Tickets at www.brownpapertickets.com, by calling 800-838-3006, or at the door.
