The Ballroom Thieves with Francesca Blanchard will perform a Waterville Rocks concert at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5, at Head of Fall on Front Street in Waterville.

Indie folk-rock duo hail from New England where their big-hearted, energetic sound has evolved worldwide since gaining an audience in 2010. Calin Peters (vocals, cello, bass), Martin Earley (vocals, guitar) continue to write and share music at a feverish pace. After a major car accident and the departure of a band member, the duo have found endless sources of inspiration. They celebrate their upcoming release “Clouds” – a lush meditation on longing to return to touring (“to see different sunsets, roads“), but also a reflection of its difficulties.

Waterville Rocks is a free, family friendly concert series that is held at Head of Falls in Downtown Waterville each summer. In the event of rain, the concert will be moved to the Waterville Opera House, 1 Common St. in Waterville.
