On Saturday, February 8th, at 7:00 PM, Music with a Mission is proud to kick off its eighth season by featuring Bold Riley for an evening of folk music. Bold Riley is a quintet hailing from western Maine, known for full vocal harmonies and uplifting originals. Fiddle, guitar, banjo, accordion, bass, and percussion provide a wide range for listeners. Members Dennis Boyd, Jr., Julia Edwards, John Gunn, Michael Hayashida, and Erin Sampson take turns singing lead, and a strong sense of community drives the energy of their music.
“We are looking forward to Bold Riley’s return to our Music with a Mission concert series,” said Dr. Richard Nickerson, Minister of Music for NWUC. “After performing here in 2016 and 2018, we’ve received many requests to have them back. We are especially excited to hear music from their 2019 new release, Kinship.” From their website: “It is family… it is love… it is hope… the music will bring you joy, because that’s what this is all about. Joy, connection, community…”
The Music with a Mission concert series is sponsored by the North Windham Union Church, which donates a portion of the proceeds to area non-profits. During the first seven seasons, MWAM provided over $65,000 for mission support to the church and other community organizations. Bold Riley has chosen to support Windham Neighbors Helping Neighbors with the community proceeds from this concert. Since starting in 2007, Windham Neighbors Helping Neighbors has provided emergency one-time fuel assistance to people in need throughout the community.
Tickets will be sold at the door and are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $5 for students and children. They are also available online at mwamconcerts.com. The box office opens at 6:00 and the doors will open at 6:30. The North Windham Union Church is located at 723 Roosevelt Trail in Windham.
