High-energy folk music duo Sassafras Stomp takes the stage with Maine grown county songwriter Sara Trunzo at 7 p.m. Friday, July 14, at the Unity College Center for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St.

The concert is Trunzo’s first performance in Waldo County following her recent immersion in Nashville Tennessee’s country music community and the recording of her debut CD.

Songsmith Sara Trunzo writes the quirks and wisdom of rural northerners — particularly women — in a fresh and un-romantic voice. Her songwriting draws on several years experience running Veggies For All food bank farm in Unity, where she helped get local produce into the hands of rural Mainers living in poverty.

Sassafras Stomp is a high-energy folk-music duo based in central Maine. Weaving together diverse fiddle traditions with a strong rhythmic sensibility, fiddler Johanna Davis and guitarist Adam Nordell build a rich, dynamic roots sound marked by driving foot percussion and sweet harmony vocals.

Tickets cost $12 and available at uccpa.unity.edu and at the door. The performing arts center.
