BH Back at It: Saturday at Side By Each

Bald Hill will return the stage this Saturday, Oct. 29, with a Halloween show at Side By Each Brewing Co., in Auburn.

Showtime is 6-9 p.m., and do come dressed for the occasion. The good folks at Side By Each are going all out Saturday night, two nights early: costume contest, Spooky punchy… They’re even unveiling a new beer!

Halloween 2022 can also be seen as a tipping point: Winter is coming. We can all feel it, in the air, and that means Bald Hill — everyone’s favorite, surprisingly hep purveyors of blues-inflected newgrass, folk rock, traditional country and Americana  — will again rise to meet its joyous musical obligations. Surely the band’s eclectic selection of newgrass, folk rock, traditional country and Americana won’t sing themselves!

Join us at SBE, where we hope not to recognize you at all. At first.

BH back at SBE Jan. 22, with special guest, Frank Fotusky

AUBURN, Maine — Bald Hill, those surprisingly hep purveyors of blues-inflected newgrass, folk rock and Americana, returns to the Side By Each Brewery on Saturday night, Jan. 22. The doors there at 110 Minot Ave. open at 11 a.m. The music begins at 6 p.m.

Bald Hill has accepted the invitation to perform monthly, in residence, all winter long at Side By Each. Next month, the band will host at SBE its annual All Dead Revue, a wildly popular Grateful Dead tribute featuring a collaboration of Bald Hill and multiple area musicians, a.k.a. Friends of Bald Hill (FOBH). Watch this space for further information on precise February dates — and news of other engagements.

Meanwhile, the Jan. 22 gig will showcase its own FOBH, the inimitable Frank Fotusky, sitting in on lead guitar. Frank plugs in to play with Yellow Sun Wreckers, a band featuring BH vocalist Renée St. Jean. But Fotusky is a nationally recognized virtuoso in the acoustic discipline known as piedmont-style blues. Indeed, Frank just released a new album last week, “Digging In John’s Backyard.”

Another great show in the offing. Y’all should come.

Nov. 26 Date Kicks Off Winter Residence at Side By Each

AUBURN, Maine — Bald Hill, those surprisingly hep purveyors of blues-inflected newgrass, folk rock & Americana, have agreed to play “in residence” here at the Side By Each Brewery through the winter of 2021-22.

As such, the New Gloucester 5-piece will perform monthly, starting this Friday night, Nov. 26, from 7-9 p.m.

For information on future monthly performances, watch this space — and the Side By Each website ( Indeed, rumor has it that Bald Hill may play its December gig at the brewery on New Year’s Eve. Stay tuned.

The Nov. 26 engagement follows the BH show held Oct. 30, where a packed house welcomed live music back to Side By Each for the first time since March 2020.

“What a great crowd that was! Such incredible energy,” said Ben DeTroy, Bald Hill mandolinist, fiddler and chief band spokesperson, based on the fact that he resides on Bald Hill. “Folks are definitely starved for live music these days. We’re thrilled to address this issue, each month going forward, at Side By Each.”
