EASTPORT Yarrrgh, Matey! Live entertainment will abound at the 2012 Eastport Pirate Festival in historic downtown Eastport this September 7, 8 and 9. Festival Co-Chair Don Dunbar says, 'This year we have more live entertainment planned for our downtown stage than any prior year.' Among the new headline entertainment will be several performances by Piper and Greybeard.

Ever wonder what it's like to be on a pirate ship? Julie and Brownie, otherwise known as Piper and Greybeard, will take you on a high-spirited pirate adventure on the good ship The Bonnie Lady at the pirate festival in Eastport Maine. Join them as they bring you (the new crew) on board for a rollicking sea voyage down the east coast, around Cape Cod (where we visit the Cape Cod Light) and through the Carolinas to meet up with the notorious Blackbeard. You'll also weather a storm at Cape Horn, and hopefully arrive safely with a cargo of fun in San Francisco.

All present will be encouraged to participate in this fun, festive program for kids and families (and pirates too!). Their book 'A Pirate's Life for Me' will be available after each show, as well as some of their other music. Come join the fun!

Friday night's lineup includes performances from Paradigm Haus, a bellydance group performing their Shanghai Dance Theater. Watch for them downtown on Saturday as well. Also on stage Friday night from 6 to 8 p.m., the band Keltic Schmeltic will return to Eastport for a pirate performance.

Fishwhistle will perform live on the downtown stage from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. leading up to the Saturday night fireworks and their return to the stage following the 7:30 p.m. fireworks display. Last year, they pleased the crowd with their great music and will be back after the fireworks to play until 10 p.m. Other great acts will be on the downtown stage. Check out the final festival schedule for information on all stage shows.
