Maine native and insatiable (10,000 mile) hiker Jeff Ryan has just published his first book: Appalachian Odyssey: A 28-year hike on the Appalachian Trail. For nearly 3 decades, Jeff hiked a section of the trail with the same friend (they started hiking in 1985 and completed the AT in 2013).


This is not a "we ate oatmeal and walked 12 miles" narrative. It is a story rich with meaning that speaks to challenges, perseverance and friendship. It is one told through a mixture of stunning photography and humor as well.  This is a fundraiser for Teens To Trails, a local non-profit dedicated to increasing outdoor opportunities for teens.

Saxophonist and composer Kyle Hardy has been an active member of the Maine music community for over a decade. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Performance with a concentration in Jazz Studies from the University of Southern Maine. Upon graduating, Kyle moved to Portland where he began to search for his own unique saxophone sound and style.


Throughout his career, Kyle has performed with many prominent bands including New York­ based jam band Soulive, The Rustic Overtones, the Portland Jazz Orchestra, the Fogcutters, Raging Brass Reggae Band, Grupo Esperanza, and the Steve Grover Quartet. Kyle’s soulful way of playing has been captured on multiple recordings, most recently on his 2016 album release, The Kyle Hardy Group.


With eagerness to explore different musical avenues, Kyle traveled to Bangalore, India in 2013 where he studied South Indian percussion under the tutelage of Sri Vidwan Vasudeva Rao. Upon returning to the US, he formed Trikala Ensemble, an Indian ­jazz group that blends characteristics of both traditions. Today, Kyle splits his time between composing, teaching, and performing around New England.

LOS GALACTACOS
Los Galactacos is a musical group made of adventuring stringbenders, strummers, pickers, and percussionists exploring an atlas of music styles and songs from all around.

Los Galactacos is navigated by Andy Happel. A true translator and ambassador of musical ideas, Happel has infused his music with elegant fire, ranging from Capitol Records’ Thanks to Gravity and modern classical label PARMA, to his work with the Don Campbell Band and his ever-expanding teaching studio. Joining him are Drew Wyman (Thanks to Gravity, The Cozmik Zombies), Todd the Rocket (The Downbeat Renaissance) and Pete Witham (The Cozmik Zombies, Spookie Daly Pride).

TOM PORTER AND FRIENDS
You may know Tom Porter as the English voice heard for many years on Maine Public Radio, but he will not be appearing at Frontier in his capacity as a broadcaster. Tom will be here to indulge his passion for playing Jazz. A former professional jazz pianist in his native UK Tom has played with some of the top recording artists on both sides of the pond. He'll be joined by a superb collection of Maine-based musicians: Musical educator Frank Mauceri on saxophone. On bass is the hugely talented and experienced Sam Sherry (and he's not as old as that makes him sound!).  Percussive accompaniment is provided by the subtle and creative drumming of Michael Boucher. They'll be performing a mixture of a old and new music, including some original material and several much-loved standards.
