Louisa Stancioff and Dead Gowns will close out the outdoor Summer Concert Series, hosted by the University of Maine at Farmington, at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, on the lawn of the Emery Community Arts Center on Academy Street.
Stancioff is an Indie folk music artist. Her Bulgarian heritage shows through in her intricate melodies, having grown up singing the ethereal, often dissonant traditional folk music with her family. Her bandmates, Dave and Dan Kelly are brothers from Bucksport, and with the addition of drums and the occasional ripping guitar solo, add some roll into the Indie folk. She is originally from Chesterville but currently lives in midcoast Maine, along with the Kelly Brothers.

Dead Gowns is the songwriting project of Geneviève Beaudoin. The band began touring the northeast in support of their first release, the New Spine EP, in late 2018. Since then, Dead Gowns has released a handful of singles, including “Lyon Alt. Version,” “Castine” and “See People.”

Audience members are welcome to bring lawn chairs or a picnic blanket. In case of rain, the concert will be moved indoors to Emery’s performance space.
