The Adam Ezra Group, with special guest Hayley Reardon, will take the stage at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 16, at The Waldo Theatre,  916 Main St. in Waldoboro.
Working outside the confines of the traditional music industry, Ezra and his bandmates Corinna Smith (fiddle), Alex Martin (drums), Poche Ponce (bass), built a community of fans through sheer grit and determination, regularly performing hundreds of shows a year for the past two decades without any major label or mainstream radio support.

Fusing folk intimacy and rock energy with soul power and pop charm, the band first emerged from Boston in the early 2000s and quickly garnered widespread acclaim for their bold, insightful songwriting and interactive, euphoric performances. From hole in the wall bars and house concerts to sold-out headline shows and dates with the likes of Little Big Town, The Wallflowers, Gavin DeGraw, Train, and The Wailers, Ezra and his bandmates treated every single gig like their last, attracting a die-hard following that believed not just in the music, but in their commitment to activism and social change, as well.

Reardon is a folk pop artist and a storyteller in the truest sense of the word. Her songs serve as postcards from an artist brave enough to take the road less traveled. The songstress made the decision to begin living life boldly when she left Nashville to tour the world playing her music. In addition to having recently been based in Dachau, Germany for a six month artist residency program awarded by the city, she has spent the past five years carrying her songs and guitar all over the globe — gathering experiences, inspirations, and soulful connections along the way.

Tickets cost 30-$55.
