Happenings (277)

Grammy-winning rocker Rick Springfield brought his band to Maine last Friday for a show at Savage Oakes Vineyard and Winery – a 200-year-old solar-powered family farm and winery in Union that has become a choice concert destination for a variety of national touring acts.

Not long before Springfield was due to take the stage, he checked in with my morning show on BIG 104 FM (104.7, 104.3, 107.7) to discuss a variety of subjects, including his life in music, his newly released 17th studio album (“Orchestrating My Life”) which features some of his best known songs re-recorded with both a band and orchestra, his role as Noah Drake on TV’s General Hospital, living with the depression he’s battled for most of his life, and people with “good hearts” like the kind he finds in Maine.

Written by Allen Adams

ELLSWORTH – Few works of dramatic literature capture the specialness inherent to the small-town experience quite like Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town.” While the world has certainly grown larger in some ways (and smaller than others), there’s no denying the lasting impact of the piece.
