Singer-songwriter Richard Buckner is "Featured Artist" for the week of December 5. He will be joined by Nat Baldwin of The Dirty Projectors for a local performance on Saturday, December 10 from 9:00 to 11:30 PM at the Lompoc Cafe, in Bar Harbor. We are giving away a FREE pair of tickets each morning at 7:45 AM after we play a track from Richard.
