Sugarbush brings together the guitar, banjo, and cello to create an Americana Folk mix that will help you endure another long Maine winter. Musical mamas Amy Green, Becca Biggs, and Camille Giglio play and harmonize like only Maine gals can, creating a unique sound that allows the artists to speak through music.
A fresh young band, the ladies of Sugarbush are lifetime Mainers, Homesteaders, Partners, Mothers & Artists- making them a great example of the new generation of true Renaissance Women here in Midcoast Maine.
You have to see these two bands in person to really know what Maine music is about, and what better place to experience it than in the barn-turned-theatre of the UCCPA?
