Event organizer Valarie Johnson said, “Laura and Brian’s music will be the perfect accompaniment to our meal. We are so happy that they can join us for the afternoon.

Dunn plays mandolin, mandola and banjo, and is well known in the Midcoast region for his interpretations of Irish folk, sea music and sailing, and a handful of originals recorded with The Alehouse String Band. Buxbaum is an accomplished cellist and backing vocalist who for several years has associated with Dunn.

“We will provide a simple meal of hearty chowders, soups and stews that will include vegan options created by LCDC volunteers,” Johnson explained. “There will also be homemade bread and apple cider. Our meal is served by candidates and elected officials, and the event ends with many desserts, think of apple and pumpkin pies! »

Dinner reservations are $20 for individuals. Guests who choose to book as a host for $50 will be recognized as a sponsor at the event and online. Children under 10 eat for free.
