Mary” in Wiscasset on Friday, July 19
Come hear The Hingham Singers, a Boston-area-based
ensemble, perform “The Music of Peter, Paul, and Mary” on
Friday, July 19, at First Congregational Church, 28 High Street,
Wiscasset. There is no admission to the concert – donations
are accepted with thanks! The 7:30 PM performance will
include many of your favorite songs from the 1960’s, including
If I Had a Hammer, Blowin’ in the Wind, The Times They Are A-
Changin’, This Land Is Your Land, and many others.
In addition, come lift your voices with the group in special sing-
a-longs on such well-known songs as Where Have All the
Flowers Gone, Puff the Magic Dragon, and Five Hundred Miles.
The group of eleven singers is accompanied by two
accomplished guitarists, Steve Waynen and Paul Cappers, and
features several trio performances that will transport you back
to the Newport Folk Festival in 1965 or to other venues where
you may have shared in the folk music tradition.
Soloist Jan Heuman has performed with the acclaimed Dale
Warland Singers. Guitarist Steve Waynen has been in many
bands over the years, most recently as lead singer and guitarist
with The Bobby O’Donnell Band. Music Director Paul Cappers’
music ensembles have performed in Europe on many tours. His
Youth Chorale at the University of Hartford performed with the
Hartford Symphony under the baton of Skitch Henderson. He
has sung and played in a number of folk groups over the course
of his career at venues as diverse as Camden Harbour Inn and
Wethersfield (CT) Country Club. One of his earliest music
teaching positions was a highly enjoyable stint as vocal teacher
in nearby Rockland, where he had the pleasure of teaching and
playing guitar with well-known Maine musician Robbie Coffin.
