The Artist community of Portland Maine

Presents

Star Support”


Saturday June 5th,2010


Join performing artists of all genres for a day-long event to benefit the North Star Music Café on 225 Congress Street, Portland.

The North Star Music Cafe is always there to help the Arts community. Now is the time for the Artistic Stars of Maine to shine bright for the
North Star!


When times are hard, it is nice to sit and listen to music, look at art, and use free wifi. But just because it looks busy at the North Star
does not mean they are always covering costs. It is the revenue from
food and drinks that pays their bills. The artists receive the door
donations, so if you listen without buying a meal or a drink, the
North Star makes nothing.


Star Support offers an opportunity for the community to view fine art, indulge in the
culinary arts, and witness some of Portland's most talented
performing artists. This event will have a variety of performances
and activities throughout the day to raise money and awareness for
this great venue that has done so much to support the arts community.
This is our turn to give back.



Star Support”

An evening of Star Talent

7pm -9pm

$10 donation at the door



Event history:


In March, after the Moose Herd for Haiti concert, Bill Hinderer and Vernon Cox talked with Kim Anderson about doing a concert with other
artists to raise money for the North Star Music Café. At that bleak
winter time, the sustainability of the venue was of deep concern to
all of us. Winter is usually a difficult time. But in this economy,
it was difficult for Kim to meet her obligations.

It was decided to create an annual event in the summer when business is better to help sustain the North Star throughout the year.


Our vision for this all-day event is to offer a multiple genre program that encompasses all the artforms that enjoy the services of our
North Star Music Café.

It all started years ago.my son and brother went to Castine and fort George with our metal detectors to see if we could find some thing of interest. after scanning for a while we got a real strong reading so started to dig in that spot. we went real deep and finally found some iron straps and a wooden container, in side was some bones. We quickly covered them up and refilled the hole so no one would ever know that we had been digging there. While we were digging a couple from Mass. came by and…See More

The OLD PERKINS HOUSE As a very young kid the story went that the Old Perkins House at the top of Dyers Lane was haunted but being a young one we never took much stork in those tales. I lived in the old Bert Stover farm house at the bottom of State St. which was a cross the 6th fairway of the Castine golf course. So when me and my brothers wanted to go to play with our friends which lived down Dyers lane and on Water street, we always used the short cut which went right by the West corner of…See More

The Sound of Iron Wheels on the Dirt RoadThis story was told to me by my brother. and he swears it is the truth.Many years ago when we where in our teens our older brother had to take just about any job there was and being just married and with a small child places in Castine were hard to find to rent. So there was a old house called The Old Fox Farm way down in a field at the point of Wadsworth Cove. The only way anyone could get to it was going through the cemetery and on a very rough dirt…See More
