Johnson Hall in Gardiner plans to present The Half Moon Jug Band during its 2023 Free Waterfront Summer Concert Series at Gardiner’s waterfront at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11.

The band is a 21st-century jug band rooted in the Downeast humor and dry wit traditions of their home state. Upbeat and positive, the Half Moon Jug Band does whatever it takes to get you singing along and dancing in the aisles. They firmly believe that “Louie, Louie” is every bit as real a folk song as “She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain.”

The concert series will present Juke Joint Devils on Aug. 18 and The Give Your Voice All-Stars will close the season on Aug. 25 followed by fireworks.
