Jud Caswell presents “A Morning Cordial Retrospective”

Award-winning singer-songwriter, Jud Caswell, will perform at the Brunswick UU Church for their Concerts for a Cause series on February 24, 2024 at 7:30 pm to raise money for Midcoast New Mainers Group and Oasis Free Clinics.

One of the leading singer-songwriters on the current scene, Jud Caswell is a master multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, banjo, cittern, whistles and Irish drums. His interpretations of songs from modern acoustic to traditional folk and Irish are done with excellent musicianship, and his words and warm, tender voice portray his landscapes like Wyeth, with a reverence for humble beauty.

Jud’s originals have won some of the most prestigious songwriting contests in the country, including the legendary Kerrville New Folk competition. His songs have been taught at Berklee, recorded by Judy Collins, and named “#4 Song of the Decade” by New York’s WFUV. The single, “The Great Divide,” from the album was the #2 song of October on Folk Alliance International’s Charts.

Jud has produced 4 acclaimed albums, the latest of which is “Morning Cordial Vol. 1.” Jud’s response to Covid was to post weekly videos on his Facebook page, calling the clips the “Morning Cordial.” These videos were a way for Jud to stay connected during the pandemic and to give himself a sense of purpose while lifting the spirits of all his followers who listened to them. He has shared more than 175 of these videos.  Many people believe that these “Morning Cordials” helped them get through the pandemic.

For this concert, Jud will be taking the fan favorites of his Morning Cordials to the live stage.  What better way to get through the bleak midwinter than to enjoy a warm and friendly evening of great music that will invigorate the heart. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Tickets:  Adults: $20 in advance, $25 at door, Students & Children: $10
