Miss Maybell and Slimpickin’s

Erik Koeppel and Lauren Sansaricq

(Lovell ME) I went to see Miss Maybell and Slimpickin’s perform but instead, landscape painters Lauren Sansaricq and Erik Koeppel showed up.

Actually, they’re one in the same.

The August 10th performance at The Brick Church in Lovell was part of the summer program at the continuing-to-improve site in that Maine village.

The most noticeable improvement was the lighting.  This year I could actually get a well-lighted shot.  Last year?  Not so much.

The talented twosome appeared with a collection of instruments and a ton of talent.  They were well worth seeing.

The theme of their show was to revisit music from the early 1900’s.  With just two of them you wondered how it would go but their instrumentation was more than enough to carry the day.

Lauren successfully mimicked the singing styles of a variety of the early singers.

The couple from New Hampshire had plenty of songs that were just plain fun to listen to.  Terrific harmony.

I tried to find out about Lauren and Erik before the show and that was where I learned about their landscape-painting skills.

What I didn’t find out was how the music “thing” came about.  Someone ought to write that story.

Here are links to Lauren’s paintings and Erik’s paintings.  They are truly multi-talented.
