UMaine Friends Plan Benefit Concert

A group of talented musical performers who met as UMaine students will stage a Jan. 23 South Portland benefit concert to benefit the ALS Association of Northern New England.  Emily Cain, the minority leader of the Maine House of Representatives who is also a staff member in UMaine’s Honors College, will be joined by Matthew Small and Kelly Caulfied for the performance, “Music for   Maddie,” dedicated to Maddie Simpson, a South Portland woman who suffers from ALS.  Simpson’s daughter, Jessica Simpson Fulchino, was a UMaine friend of the three performers.  A story in Keep Me Current provides more information about the concert and the woman who inspired it.
