For the last 40 years popular musicians from Maine based folk groups Devonsquare and Schooner Fare and many of their musical friends have joined them to present a concert to benefit the Jack McPhillips Memorial Fund.
McPhillips himself organized the first three concerts in order to see his two favorite groups at the same time.
After his untimely death in 1980 , the Jack McPhillips Memorial Fund was established to continue his mission of helping out those in need on a local level.
This year’s annual concert will take place Sunday afternoon March 31, 2019 from 3:00-7:00 pm, at the Holiday Inn By the Bay, 88 Spring St, Portland, ME 04101. This year’s concert will include Schooner Fare and Devonsquare along with former group members. Also appearing will be Don Campbell, Robbie Coffin, Tom Dyhrberg and many other talented Maine musicians.
