Concert in Orland
August 19 @ 7:00 pm
The Oranbega Retreat Center in Orland welcomes singer-songwriter Danie Ocean back from Philadelphia to give a concert of her new music, along with some old favorites, on Friday, Aug. 19, at 7 p.m.
The Retreat Center, located at 36 Narramissic Drive, Orland, supports the work of artists in all genres who otherwise are under-represented. Danie Ocean, who is African-American, non-binary, lesbian and vision-impaired, certainly fits that description. Her music, with R&B, jazz and folk influences, pours from her throat and heart in a way that crosses all boundaries and speaks to all people. She will be backed by the local jazz and rock ensemble, Spence & Co., led by Castine drummer Spencer Nelson.
The concert will be held in the Riverbank Studio at the Oranbega Retreat Center. It is an intimate setting, so be sure to reserve your place early. You may do so by emailing [email protected] or texting 952-2363. Donations may be made at the door, with a suggested $10 for each reserved seat, $15 without a reservation. Light snacks (no alcohol) will be provided. Masks are requested.
