Castlebay will be the program of the Lincoln County Historical Association’s 2018 Winter Lecture Series set for 1 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11, in the Communications Building, 34 Bath Road. Coffee and pastries will be served.

In this one-hour presentation, musicians Julia Lane and Fred Gosbee will perform and discuss the origins and significance of bygone ballads collected from Maine’s seafaring communities and logging camps. Castlebay’s vocals are supported with Celtic harp, 12-string guitar, fiddle and woodwinds.

Lane has studied piano, classical and flamenco guitar and voice. A self-taught player of the Celtic folk harp, her unique style has won three international competitions. Gosbee sings and plays classic and 12-string guitar, viola, fiddle, and Irish flute and tin whistle. Their 24 recordings include original music, as well as the bygone ballads they have found in their research.

A $5 donation is suggested.
