Linwood's in Gouldsboro is 100% Maine

The Hancock County roadside open mic is just about perfect

GOULDSBORO, Maine — Linwood Boucher is a Maine treasure.  

Every summer Sunday for ten years, he has put on a "Sunday Jam." 

"Anyone who wants to get up on stage is welcome to go," he says with a big, friendly smile.

A mix of talent appears.  Some of it is real down home. Often, some credentialed performers can't resist being a part of this organic fun.

"It's the highlight of my summer," says Christopher Spellman who has scored two movies.

Linwood, known as Lennie to his friends, is often on stage singing his popular song, "The Golden Girls of Maine."
