UUCB Concerts for a Cause presents

Saturday, February 24 @ 7:30 pm
Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick



Award-winning singer/songwriter, Jud Caswell, will perform at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick’s Concert for a Cause series on January 8, 2022 at 7:30 pm to raise money for local charities, 

Jud Caswell is a master multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, banjo, cittern, whistles and Irish drums. His interpretations of songs from modern acoustic to traditional folk and Irish are done with precision and care, but it’s his songwriting that puts him in a category all his own. Jud’s originals have won some of the most prestigious songwriting contests in the country, including the legendary Kerrville New Folk competition. His songs have been taught at Berklee, recorded by Judy Collins, and named “#4 Song of the Decade” by New York’s WFUV. Jud’s latest record, “Live at the Seagull Shop” was the number one album for March 2020 on the Folk Alliance Radio charts.

Jud has a keen eye for detail, a head full of far-away, and a heart full of home.  He draws inspiration from the land like Mary Oliver, pushing gently into the specific until it unfolds into the universal. He paints his landscapes like Wyeth, with a reverence for humble beauty. And with a voice fresh as water over granite and soft as a pine needle bed, he wields his instruments with the matter-of fact deftness of an old woodsman with an axe.  Jud makes his home in Topsham, Maine, where he runs Frog Hollow Recording Studio.

Listen to  samples of Jud Caswell:

  • Great Divide:  
    Singer/Songwriter Caswell takes great pride that this song has been loved and shared by Democrats and Republicans alike, and he hopes his grandparents would be proud.
  • Rocky Road to Dublin:
    An example of Jud singing and playing Irish music with a variety of instruments.
