UNITY — Maine Farmland Trust and the Free Range Music Series will present an evening of music with William Joseph Jiordan and Henry Finch at 7 p.m. Friday, April 15, at the Unity Food Hub, 69 School St. The concert will kick-off Veggies For All’s 9th year of hunger relief and launch a crowdfunding campaign to help the project obtain a truck, according to a news release from Maine Farmland Trust.

William Joseph Jiordan is the musical moniker for mid-coast Maine based musician/vegetable farmer William Giordano. His songs weave praise and heartbreak — for the land, for love lost and gained, for the hopeful unending generosity of humanity — into a New England mytho/mystic narrative. He performs an original catalog with poetic vocal arrangements with a five-piece band. Their acoustic guitar and vocal harmony-led sound evokes feeling of something between Fiest and the Barr Brothers, with a rhythm section that might be like a marriage of the straight-forward folk rock style of Neil Young with the white-tight-funk nuance of Vulfpeck.

Giordano has spent the last decade in rural Maine, working with both rural arts and Maine’s farms and food producers. He worked with Tim Semler and Lydia Moffett to develop their old world bakery, Tinder Hearth, as a wood-fired bread mecca and hub of local culture.

He played guitar as a member of the Blue Hill-based dance band, The Living Daylight, and co-founded the folk ensemble O Deer! with Bridge Isabella Semler. He was a musical collaborator with the mythology and nature theater group the Terra Diddle Collective and Musical Director of LEAP Dance Theater with dancer, transformational theater and holistic arts-therapy pioneer Kristi Williamson.
