WALDOBORO — A singalong to celebrate the holiday with children, families, and people of all ages is set for 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 26, at Broad Bay Congregational Church, 941 Main St.

Vocalists Joe and Lindsay Cough will lead the audience in an eclectic mix of songs, from traditional carols such as “Hark the Herald, Angels Sing” to Burl Ives’ “Silver and Gold,” to songs from the animated classic “Rudolf,” such as “There’s Always Tomorrow.”

Joe Cough describes it as “a concert where people will sing together.” He adds, “In years before, this was something people did, and I miss that. Making a big noise with song is a way to bringing all of us together. And what better time than Christmas?” The couple hopes to fill the church up to the steeple with song.

Cough (who also performs as Erasmus More), is a Maine-based vocalist, composer and educator who revels in crossing many types of musical genres. He has a master’s degree in vocal performance and has taught voice, guitar, piano and music composition at Mid-Coast Music Academy. His wife, Lindsay Hawthorne Smith Cough, also from Maine, is an accomplished singer, Norwegian hardanger fiddler and folk-artist who makes faery dolls, according to a news release from the church.

This concert is free, and everyone is welcome. Donations to compensate the musicians and support the ongoing ministry of the church are accepted.
