The Little Brown Church of Round Pond was established in 1863 as a non denominational Church. At that time ship building was the principal industry on the coast of Maine. In one season three shipyards were operating in this small village. Because of this, many new families moved to the area and the population rapidly grew. Two Churches were established in that same year. The Brown Church has continued as a non denominational church with guest ministers throughout the summer months.

Since 1986 Castlebay has been weaving together Maine's nautical and British Isles legacies transporting their audience through time and across the Atlantic. Julia Lane and Fred Gosbee have loved and researched traditional music for most of their lives and blend history, legend and experience into their personable performances.
Energetic Irish dance tunes on fiddle, pipes, flute, banjo, and guitar (plus some dry humor) from some of southern Maine's mainstay traditional musicians.
Maine singer/songwriter Jud Caswell has got a keen eye for detail. There’s a magic to the way he draws you in until you’re transported -- to the old farmhouse, the salty shore, a wood full of birdsong.
