Portland Press Herald staff writer Ray Routhier will try anything. Once. During 20 years at the Press Herald he’s been equally attracted to stories that are unusually quirky and seemingly mundane. He’s taken rides on garbage trucks, sought out the mother of two rock stars, dug clams, raked blueberries, and spent time with the family of bedridden man who finds strength in music. Nothing too dangerous mind you, just adventurous enough to find the stories of real Mainers doing real cool things.

PORTLAND – A free concert scheduled for Thursday featuring the bands Spirit Family Reunion and Ghost of Paul Revere has been moved from Monument Square to Port City Music Hall due to a forecast of bad weather.

The free concert is part of the Alive @ 5 music series, and was organized by Portland’s Downtown District and The State Theatre. It’s scheduled to start at 5 p.m.

The show will still be free, at Port City Music Hall, just a couple of blocks down from Monument Square, at 504 Congress Street. There will be full service bar for attendees 21 and older. Additional food and refreshments options are also available.

Spirit Family Reunion is a nationally-known band with an Americana-roots sound. Ghost of Paul Revere is a Maine-based holler-folk band.

Thursday’s concert is the last one scheduled in this year’s Alive @ 5 series. For more information go to
