On Friday, June 30 at the York Street Meeting House in Lyndon, Catamount Arts and the Upright Steeple Society will sponsor a concert by the Australian musical group, the Mae Trio. Renowned for their stellar three-part harmonies, sophisticated instrumentation and songwriting, The Mae Trio present a unique, contemporary twist on folk music. In April, they released their second album, Take Care Take Cover. Their debut album, Housewarming, earned them Folk Alliance Australia Youth Award and National Film & Sound Archive Folk Recording of the Year and saw them tour Australia, Canada, USA and Europe with performances at the Hydro Stadium at Celtic Connection, Glasgow, Americana Folk Festival, Nashville, Cambridge Folk Festival, UK Edmonton Folk Festival, Canada, and Port Fairy and National Folk Festivals, Australia. The trio, consisting of Maggie Rigby (banjo, ukulele, guitar and vocals), sister Elsie Rigby (violin, ukulele and vocals and Anita Hillman (cello, bass and vocals), grew up steeped in music. Elsie and Maggie played in their family band and spent their childhood going to music festivals and camps, choir rehearsals and concerts while Anita, with her classical pianist mother and folk enthusiast father, grew up playing in orchestras, string quartets and jazz ensembles. The York Street Meeting House is the recently renovated 1829 Greek Revival church building, formerly known as the First Congregational Church of Lyndon, located at 153 York Street.
