Fays to play last Sunday concert

BAR HARBOR — Mike and Susie Fay will play the last of the Sundays at the Jesup Winter Concerts on Sunday, April 30, at 2 p.m.

The Fays have been making music together since 1979. Their music is a blend of classical, rock, folk and soul, with a heavy Celtic influence.

Mike Fay is a singer-songwriter whose music developed from spontaneous, acapella singing on street corners in Brooklyn and grew through travels in the rural South. Finally landing on the coast of Maine, he has, along with Susie Fay, composed songs from the heart, performed and recorded his own work and others’ work. Together they have recorded two collections of original music, “First Phase” and “What Would I Do?”

In addition to duo performances, they play with the Big Moose Band at contra dances and other events, and with the Reversing Falls Band, where Mike Fay is the dance caller. He also will call the contra dance at the Jesup on Saturday, April 22, at 6:30 p.m.

The concert is free and open to the public, though donations are gratefully accepted. Contact the Jesup at 288-4245 or [email protected].
