ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rod Harrington and Dana Sawyer grew up in Washington County and have known each other since they were teens, back in the sixties. While in their twenties, they spent a year together, in 1974, teaching at Ellsworth High School, where they often shared stories about life downeast over lunch. Those lunchtime stories inspired them to put together the series of characters and situations that made this album, originally issued on vinyl in 1985, an instant classic. Rather than just telling stories, which can be a bit limiting, They decided to stage actual situations that would make the listener feel as though they were there, on the scene, as the real action unfolded. They decided to make the record completely authentic, in a way that Maine natives would instantly recognize as “the real deal,” while also making the accents and local expressions recognizable (well, mostly) to those “from away.” Their success is indicated by the fact that twenty-five years after its only release, this album is still talked about in Washington and Hancock Counties as the best recording of Maine humor ever. But you be the judge. Spend some time on the mud flats with Chauncey and Leroy Pinkham; go lobster fishing with Boomerang Beal (who claims he used to wrestle bears at the Bangor Fair); be on the scene of an unusual car accident downeast; and sing along as Rod cranks out “Casco Bay” while Dana plays the kazoo. Just try not to laugh, and good luck on that one, Chummy!

Better than Beans on Sunday!
The Pinkham Brothers are back and better than ever! Welcome to Maine is the only Maine humor album that truly captures what its like to go clamming, wrestle bears and live Downeast. I'd rather listen to Leroy and Chauncey than find a million-dollar bill!
