NEWCASTLE — Oxbow Brewing Company is hosting live music events this summer at the Tasting Room, as well as at the Damariscotta River Association’s Darrows Barn at Round Top Farm in Damariscotta.

Every other Friday throughout the summer, Oxbow features free live music and food for purchase from local food trucks at the Tasting Room.
In July, Oxbow will host two concerts in support of the DRA, beginning tonight with an evening of bluegrass with Maine locals Puddn’head.

The concert on July 20 will feature Muddy Ruckus, an Americana-rock duo from Portland. The stripped down power duo features guitarist Ryan Flaherty and percussionist Erika Stahl. The band blends guitar and percussion on a suitcase drum kit, and is known for a full rock band sound, despite their duo status.

Doors open at 6 p.m. for both shows and the music starts at 6:30. There is a $5 cover charge at the door, of which a portion will be donated to the DRA. Oxbow will sell and serve fresh draft beer and a local food truck will also be on site with food service.
