Agrarian Acts: a celebration of agriculture through music

August 25, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - August 27, 2016 @ 9:00 pm

MFT will host a traveling dinner & concert tour, featuring a new album release from musician and farmer Adam Nordell.  The concerts will take place over the course of three consecutive days: Deering Grange in Portland on August 25; The Hub in Unity on August 26; and Halcyon Grange in Blue Hill on August 27. All shows are 6-9 PM; Tickets for each show are $20 and include a wood-fired pizza meal. Kids 10 and under get in free!

Adam Nordell is a Maine-based roots-folk songwriter and organic farmer.  Together with his partner Johanna Davis, he cultivates thirteen acres of south facing field in Unity and travels coast-to-coast performing high-energy, place-based folk music on guitar, banjo and fiddle.  Drawing imagery from the rolling hills of Maine farm country and his native-born Montana mountains, Adam writes lyrics etched with a clear sense of place and steeped in folk music tradition.  His new album is centered around the title track, Walk These Fields, and celebrates the beauty and stillness of rural landscapes, the struggle to make due with limited resources, and the forever surprising resilience of hope.

Adam will be joined onstage by Johanna Davis, as well as William Joseph Jiordan in Portland and Blue Hill and Putnam Smith in Unity.

In addition to farm-grown music, these concerts will feature a casual, family-style meal. Maine Grain Alliance will generously lend their mobile wood-fired oven to the event, and pizza made with flour and vegetables from Nordell and Davis’ Songbird Farm, fresh summer salads, and dessert will be served family-style.  Dinner 6-7; music 7-9.

** We will have a limited number of tickets available at the door –first come, first serve! **

Pizza Menu: Zucchini + Sweet Corn, Pesto + Cherry Tomato, Roasted Beets + Greens, Onions + Peppers; Simple Margherita. *Note: we will have gluten free crust available for those who are gluten intolerant.
