Heritage tour to visit Greenville

GREENVILLE – The Natural Resource Education Center will present Sid Stutzman and the Douty Hill Band and their “An Acoustic Tour of Piscataquis County” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, in the Greenville High School auditorium.

The 45-minute presentation of the heritage-based music of the Douty Hill Band is complemented by slide images and photographs of past and present-day Piscataquis County.

Stutzman, a well-known Sangerville musician, has been writing songs about the history, people, places and nature found in present and past Piscataquis County for more than 25 years. He also has recorded two albums with the band, which consists of Ron Hall of Sangerville and Sunny and Tracy Stutzman of Dover-Foxcroft.

The original presentation of “An Acoustic Tour of Piscataquis County,” given at regional schools, was supported by the Maine Arts Commission and the Quebec-Labrador Foundation and sponsored by the Cultural Heritage and Eco-tourism Committee of the Piscataquis County Economic Development Council.

This program is designed to help build pride and awareness in the unique and interesting cultural heritage of the region.

There is no charge for the program, but donations to the Natural Resource Education Center would be appreciated.
