The Mallett Brothers Band will perform a benefit concert on Sunday, November 29th at 6 PM. The concert will benefit Pine Tree Hospice, a volunteer hospice which serves 39 towns in central Maine. Will Mallett says, “The Piscataquis County community is very near and dear to us, and we’re very excited about this opportunity to give back to that community. We also can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday than with some good friends in the hometown!”
The Mallett Brothers Band is a nationally touring country rock and roll/Americana band with Maine roots. Led by brothers Luke and Will Mallett, the band is rounded out by Brian Higgins on drums, Nick Leen on bass, Wally on dobro and electric guitar, and sometimes filled out by Matt Mills on lead guitar, pedal steel and banjo. The Mallett Brothers Band’s latest CD, Lights Along The River, released this year, is loaded with the kind of gritty Americana roots rock that these boys from Maine have become so well respected for. Their sound has been described as having “organic, earthy substance and fiery passion.” The band combines its authentic roots rock sound with a reflective lyrical style featuring both acoustic and electric guitars.
Tickets to the concert will be sold at the door; no advance ticket sales. Pricing for tickets is $10 for bleacher seats and students, and $15 for chair seating on the gym floor. The concert will be held at Foxcroft Academy located at 975 West Main Street in Dover-Foxcroft.

The Bossov Ballet Theatre of the Maine Central Institute will be performing the Nutcracker on Friday, December 11th at 7 PM, Saturday, December 12th with a showing at 2 PM then again at 7 PM and Sunday, December 13th at 2 PM. The Nutcracker was written in 1816 by a German man named E.T.A. (Ernst Theodore Amadeus) Hoffmann. His original story was not suitable for children; however, a French man named Alexander Dumas rewrote it as a children’s story in 1892. The Nutcracker has since become one of the most popular ballets in the world and has danced across hundreds if not thousands of stages. The Nutcracker in short, is a story of a young German girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince. A fierce battle against a Mouse King with seven heads begins. The ballet is like a Christmas dream, as you climb inside and lose yourself to the stage, dancers, and music. The performance will be held at the Waterville Opera House located on 1 Common Street in Waterville. Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for youths and seniors, $65 for a family pack that includes 2 adults and 2 youths. For more information or to reserve a ticket contact 207-873-7000.
