The 26th annual Blue Hill Pops Concert, sponsored by the Bagaduce Music Lending Library, will be held on Sunday, July 3 at 7:30 pm in the George Stevens Academy gymnasium on Union Street in Blue Hill. This year’s festival of “Sounds Around Blue Hill” will feature fiddler extraordinaire Andy Stein, the Powdermilk Biscuit fiddler for over 20 years on A Prairie Home Companion. Other 2016 Blue Hill Pops performers will include flamenco guitarist Gregoire de la Costa and flamenco dancer Lindsey Bourassa, the New Traditional Jazz Band with pianist Paul Sullivan and the Bagaduce Pops Singers under the direction of Bronwyn Kortge.

As in past years, Blue Hill Pops will conclude with a patriotic finale featuring an audience sing-along of our nation’s service songs and “America the Beautiful”.
