Historic Deertrees Theatre, “Maine’s Most Enchanting Playhouse”, announces its 85th anniversary summer concert season. The quintessential performing arts venue, providing entertainment to the Greater Maine region since 1936, presents diverse music offerings for the summer of 2021. The season also boasts its hallmark theatre series in its broadly scheduled summer, from June through early September, detailed at deertrees-theatre.org.
Singer/Songwriter Don Campbell
Saturday, July 17, 7:30 pm, tickets are $30
Portland, Maine-based Don Campbell has a unique and uncanny ability to sing comfortably in the tenor range of Vince Gill, Chris Isaak or Dan Fogelberg, and go easily into the sub-bass vocal level range of country greats Josh Turner and Johnny Cash, with music that resides in the home of “American crossover” akin to the Eagles and John Cougar Mellencamp. Don’s mandate is to “always perform for the audience, never at them.” Don is a highly talented multi-instrumentalist and plays acoustic guitar, piano, B3 Organ, bass, electric guitar, nylon string guitar, mandolin, and harmonica in recordings. Don’s music feels like a friend, a natural extension of the singer-songwriter. This concert is generously sponsored by David and Darbee Percival and Norway Savings Bank.

About Deertrees Theatre
Founded in 1936 as an opera house, Deertrees Theatre was built on the site of an old deer run in the forest above the village of Harrison, Maine. Constructed of rose hemlock in the Adirondack style with hand carved fixtures and near perfect acoustics, the theatre has long been home to Broadway-quality entertainment.
Now listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, the non-profit Deertrees Theatre presents an eclectic offering of theatrical productions and comedies, family entertainment, and a variety of musical concerts during the quintessential summer theater season annually from late June through early September. As a most active performing arts venue of the Northeast, Deertrees is home to the Sebago-Long Lake Music Festival on Tuesday evenings in July, The Backstage Art Gallery featuring the works of local artists, and The Salt Lick Café, offering cabaret acts, small bites, beer and wine.
