Yoga for Cancer

Mid Coast Hospital and Maine Pines Racquet & Fitness are again partnering to offer a yoga program designed to limit stress, reduce fatigue, and promote healing for cancer patients. “Yoga for Cancer” takes place weekly, beginning September 21 . It is free and open to cancer patients before, after, or during treatment.

Research suggests that yoga can improve the symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment, while helping patients cope. Benefits include a decrease in fatigue, pain, and anxiety as well as an increase in appetite, better quality sleep, and improved bone density. The Yoga for Cancer program will help cancer patients develop a better sense of well being, stimulate the immune system, and increase flexibility and strength.

Detroit, by Lisa d'Amour

DETROIT – by Lisa D’Amour- The Professional Ensemble 

October 12 – 29 

Thursday – Saturday at 7:30
Sunday at 2:00

All tickets Pay-What-You-Want

A dark comedy by The Theater Project’s Professional Ensemble, directed by Christopher Price.

In a first-ring suburb just outside a city that might be Detroit, Ben and Mary see sudden signs of life at the deserted house next door and invite their new neighbors Sharon and Kenny over for a barbecue. As the action unfolds we learn that Sharon and Kenny met at rehab, neither is employed, and they don’t own a stick of furniture. The quintessential American backyard party quickly turns into something more dangerous—and filled with potential.

“A sharp X-ray of the embattled American psyche as well as a smart, tart critique of the country’s fraying social fabric, Ms. D’Amour’s dark comedy is as rich and addictively satisfying as a five-layer dip served up with a brimming bowl of tortilla chips.” —NY Times.

UUCB Concerts for a Cause: under the song tree

A rare reunion concert of “under the song tree,” a trio of three of Maine’s favorite singer-songwriters who have not performed together in over 10 years: Dan Merrill, Anni Clark, and Lynn Deeves. Their concert features acoustic guitars, flute, harmonica, a variety of percussive instruments, and stellar three-part harmonies.

In 2000 the trio got together and recorded a CD, “under the song tree LIVE.” The CD clearly demonstrates their talents as seasoned musicians and songwriters, and their strength as a trio of performers who are passionate about music. In 2002, NH’s Jam Music Magazine readers voted them “Folk Artists of the Year.”

Lynn Deeves DrummingMaine singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist Lynn Deeves honed her early musical and stage chops on the New England, high energy rock scene and has since released 4 independent CD’s. After 17 years of singing in the top-40 club circuit, receiving Maine Female Vocalist of the Year, Lynn Deeves began writing her own songs with folk, blues, and gospel influences. Rich, soulful vocals combined with a sharp wit, and dynamic stage presence, have created a continually expanding NE fan base. The Portland Press Herald says “…5 star stage presence…this gal’s got a set of pipes…” Deeves has opened for Cheryl Wheeler, Janis Ian, Catie Curtis, Ellis Paul, America and many others.

Anni ClarkAnni Clark is part folk, part blues, sometimes pop, but all parts original. For over 20 years this Maine native has pleased audiences nationwide with her captivating voice, mindful lyrics, and excellent guitar playing. She has received Female Artist of the Year on multiple occasions. Clark is a Maine native who has recorded seven successful albums and shared stages with international acts including Shawn Colvin, Richie Havens and Cheryl Wheeler. The Kennebec Journal wrote “what I love about Clark is that she can have you laughing one moment and close to tears the next with the honest emotions in her material.”

 

Dan MerrillDan Merrill creates intimate, honest lyrics and soaring vocals set to pop, funk, acoustic rock, folk and singer-songwriter styles. During his acoustic beginning in the 90’s, Dan won the coveted “Newfolk” songwriter’s award at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas in 1995. In 2000, in addition to playing with Under the Song Tree, he joined forces with the Pennsylvania progressive rock band, Simon Apple which yielded the band’s first U.S. Top 10 single in 2005 – “Hold Me” [Like A Lover] written by Dan. He was also awarded JPF (Just Plain Folks), “Male Vocalist of the Year.”. And now, it all comes full circle with Dan returning to his acoustic singer/ songwriter roots in his latest CD “Tomorrow to Yesterday”
