Lovely typical charming seaside town full of boats and yachts in the summer. Many restaurants. Lovely setting
Actually went there in August of 2012 and saw the Steep Canyon Rangers who had just released "Rare Bird Alert" (Steve Martin and Paul McCartney on the album!) Great cozy venue with bar. Almost always sold out!
We went to hear Ed Gerhard in August and were NOT disappointed! The humble surroundings were a perfect setting for this phenomenal performance.
While on vacation we notice that a perfomer that we knew happened to be appearing at the historic opera house in Boothbay Harbour. Found tickets and we were pleasantly surpised at the setting. The acoustics were phenominal because they did not have amplified sound when this theatre was built. They have done an amazing job of preserving it and bring... More
Went recently to see David Wilcox, and acoustic guitar singer. Didn't know much about David, but really enjoyed his show, and his 'therapy' in his music.

A group of us went to see a local band and Maine curmudgeon, Danny Deale, here and really enjoyed it. Tickets were $10 up to the day of the show and $15 the day of the show. The interior of this old building has been restored and is worth a look. Some seats were folding chairs and others were old... More
