It is hard to believe we are coming up on the last film of August. It seems fitting that we end the month with the wry humor of Woody Allen. With “Cafe Society,” we end our summer schedule of daily shows at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. When “Jason Bourne” opens in September, we move back to our fall schedule (more on that next week). And soon the leaves will be changing colors…
The Summer of Praise under the tent at the top of the hill, across from Ralph’s Homes on Route One in Waldoboro, will have its final concert for the season with a return visit of the bluegrass style of the local band Northern Breeze at 7 p.m., Friday, Aug. 26. Founded by Gene and Patty Fowler of the town of Washington, the group also features Josh Dyer and Mike Lash. Gene Fowler plays the banjo and guitar and sings backup to Patty Fowler’s voice. Patty also plays the mandolin. Dyer is a talented guitarist and backup and lead singer. Lash rounds out the sound with his bass-playing. The band’s purpose is to convey the love of God through its music and to lift up the name of Jesus in worship.
