CAMDEN — For acoustic trio String Bee, 2018 marks its 30th anniversary. As they have for the past 14 years, they will kick off the new season for the Trinity Community Coffee House, 98 Main St. The concert will be at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 20.

The award-winning group features John O’Hara on hammered dulcimer, Steve Quenneville on vocals and guitar and pianist/vocalist Dave Liddy. Since forming, the trio has produced four recordings and their performance at this year’s concert will feature original music from each of those records.

Quenneville’s vocal and guitar skills are rooted in country blues, and he finds inspiration during daily walks with Stella, his golden retriever. O’Hara is the Irish influence in the band, playing on one of his personally handmade hammered dulcimers. Liddy practices a daily routine of Boogie Woogie and Ragtime piano.

Eddie Foster, Elvis impersonator, will perform at 7 p.m. on Feb. 17 at the coffee house.

Guests may enter the front doors, with handicapped entry through the parish hall at the rear of the church. A free will offering for performers only will be taken in lieu of an admission. Refreshments will be served by Ladies Guild of Trinity.
