L.L.Bean’s Hometown Celebration is just one week away, and we’re looking forward to free outdoor concerts and entertainment with Chris Isaak, Jo Dee Messina and Dan Zanes. Chris Isaak, who is headlining the celebration with a July 7th concert, will showcase his unique musical style, inspired by musical legends Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis.
Isaak’s latest record, “Beyond the Sun,” is a tribute to the greats mentioned above, each of who got his start at Memphis’s Sun Studio. If you’re looking for a little country and a little rock and roll, check out Isaak’s music videos here.
Isaak will perform 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, July 7th, on our Discovery Stage on the L.L.Bean Freeport, Maine, campus. The concert is free, so bring your family – and be sure to stay for our firework spectacular, beginning at 9 p.m.!
We’re also excited to welcome Jo Dee Messina and Dan Zanes.
Jo Dee Messina is a Massachusetts-born country crooner who has sold more than five million albums. She’s had nine #1 singles and has received two Grammy nominations, along with many other awards.

Messina will be taking the stage in Discovery Park on Wednesday, July 4th, at 7:30.
Dan Zanes takes the stage on Saturday, July 7th. Zanes, a family-friendly artist, is on a mission to show everybody that they can play together. Just watch his video, “House Party Time.”
