A Chronicle of Rock Concerts in Southern Maine

About This Project

Ford Reiche is a Freeport resident, a graduate of Falmouth High School, University of Maine and University of Maine Law School, who has written previously about his restoration of Halfway Rock Light Station near Portland, and was then possessed by an urge to document the history of live rock and roll in Maine in a formative period of time.

The result is the new book “A Long Long Time Ago–Major Rock and Roll Concerts in Southern Maine 1955-1977.”

About the music widely disliked by the parents of boomers, but which went on to become the American soundtrack.

Ford will talk about all this at 7PM on Thursday May 2 at Maine Historical Society on Congress Street in Portland, and gave us a preview today on the WCME Midcoast Morning Buzz.

If you missed it, you may still hear it here.
