BAR HARBOR — Art-pop experimentalist Nat Baldwin will perform a free show at College of the Atlantic’s Thomas S. Gates, Jr. Community Center on Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m.

Baldwin is a musician and writer living in Portland. He began playing double bass in high school and studied jazz performance at the Hartt School of Music before dropping out to pursue his own musical interests outside the confines of academia.
