COA to present Milkman's Union

BAR HARBOR—College of the Atlantic presents The Milkman’s Union, an enigmatic three-piece based in Portland. Drawing from classical, jazz, electronic, and various non-western music, the band is easiest characterized as indie-rock. It will perform at COA’s Gates Community Center on Friday, May 11 at 8 p.m.

Comprised of Henry Jamison on vocals and guitar, Peter McLaughlin on drums and Jeff Beam on bass, the band has been described as “young edu­cated folk mak­ing highly acces­si­ble, deeply melan­choly pop rock with a lit­er­ary bent.” It has been called one of Maine’s best, most versatile groups, being named Deli Magazine’s New England artist of year for 2011, and singled out in the Huffington Post. Its latest full-length album Roads In is currently heard on independent radio stations across the United States and Canada. Milkman’s Union also recently released a single on Eternal Otter Records featuring guest vocals from fellow Maine artist, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper,
