Mainers are a hardy bunch. This year at the Common ground Country Fair I’ll be sharing stories of Mainers who have worked the land and sea. These are the true tales of Maine's great traditions and characters: farmers, loggers, river drivers, and fishermen. Come have a listen!

When: Saturday, Sept 26 at 2 pm
Where: Russel's Poetry Grove
Common Ground Country Fair
Unity, ME

If you’ve ever been to the Fair, you know — and if you haven’t been, anyone who has will tell you — it’s an event like no other, that brings together so many people from so many walks of life, all in the spirit of celebrating the rural and agricultural traditions of Maine.
