Maine Singer Will Blow You Away With Cocker-esque Vocal!
Hallowell has been Maine’s epicenter of creativity for as long as I can remember. The tiny city on the river is well known for it’s art galleries, community theater, antique shops, and no lack of great eating and drinking establishments.It’s been called “Augusta’s Old Port” and “The Little Easy”. You know, like New Orleans on the Kennebec. This one-of-a-kind center of good vibes is also renowned for it’s festivals. The most famous one being, Old Hallowell Day on the third weekend of July which has been celebrated annually since the late Sixties. Right around the time of the Woodstock Music and Art Festival in 1969. Next Tuesday marks the 48th anniversary of the event that inspired a generation to live in a kinder, simpler way with art, music and love. That spirit continues and is alive and well in Hallowell. This Sunday the community will throw another great party with the 3rd Annual Hallowell Woodstock Revival & Art Walk. The biggest attraction of course is the incredible music, reverently delivered by Hallowell’s amazing scene of musicians. In the video below, this guy sings With a Little Help from My Friends at last year’s fest. It’s local singer/songwriter, Mike Rancourt and he absolutely nails an impersonation of the late, great Joe Cocker. Longtime Blimpsters will remember Mike’s band, Buffalo Chip Tea.
