AUGUSTA — The duo of Val Bennett and Tess Zardus, The Plaid Dragonflies, will perform at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12, at Jewett Hall Auditorium. A snow date is set for Feb. 19.

The duo will play and sing tunes from a variety of genres as they weave their harmonies into the music of the Beatles, Johnny Cash, Bette Midler, Bonnie Raitt and others, as well as their own songs. They’ll explain their inspirations for music and writing and will encourage attendees to sing along.

Bennett and Zardus come to Concerts at Jewett at the request of UMA Senior College students who heard them perform in the classroom and wanted to hear more.

Special guest Dave Thibodeau will perform on the bass guitar.

Tickets cost $10 for adults, $5 for students, and is free for children 12 and younger. Tickets are available at Pat’s Pizza in Augusta, Dave’s Appliance in Winthrop and at the door.
