MADRID — The Sandy River Ramblers will perform a benefit concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2, at Reeds Mill Church. 142 Reeds Mills Road.

The bands CD “Cry of the Loon” is a collection of original songs about Maine. Led by nationally-known Bluegrass songwriter Stan Keach, the band has been performing for more than 25 years.

Madrid’s own Bud Godsoe, the Rambler’s banjoist since 1985, learned to play while he was working on the Alaska Pipeline in the 70s, and wrote the Ramblers’ hit song about Fly Rod Crosby, featured in the Youtube video publicizing the Fly Rod Crosby Trail, which will eventually go from Strong to Oquossoc.

There will be a free will offering to support the church and the band.
