Maine-ly Harmony women’s barbershop chorus will present “Hollywood Hit Parade” at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 30, at the Kennebec Community Church, St. Andrews Street.

The performance will feature tunes from movies of the 1930s to 1980s, the chorus will share the spotlight with the Route 17 Ramblers, who will add a country and western flavor to the show.

The Route 17 Ramblers are a traditional country ensemble formed in the fall of 2015 by Anne Danforth (guitar/vocals), Donna Ryder (guitar/vocals), Lise Bécu (fiddle/mandolin/vocals) and Rosey Gerry (autoharp/ banjo/guitar/vocals).

Since the four musicians hail from Chelsea, West Gardiner, Martinsville and Lincolnville, their weekly travel on Route 17 for rehearsals inspired their name. With an emphasis on blended harmonies, the Ramblers present a good mix of music for all types of audiences, with arrangements of traditional country and gospel music, and even a few French songs eased in.

Tickets cost $10 at the door for adults and are free for children 12 and younger.
