Preston's at The River Course presents Sara Trunzo in concert on Friday, June 14, 2019.

Country ongsmith Sara Trunzo writes the quirks and wisdom of rural northerners, particularly young women, in a fresh and un-romantic voice. If you ask singer-songwriter Sara Trunzo where she’s from, she could say, with equal authority, her native state of New Jersey, where she grew up just outside of New York City, or her adopted state of Tennessee, as she currently resides in the Bells Bend community of Nashville. But odds are she will say that home is Unity, Maine, where she attended college and has spent much of her adult life, and where she found her connection to the land, her calling to serve rural communities, and her authentic storyteller’s voice.

Sara Trunzo’s Maine-grown country songs are influenced by the decade she spent running a food bank farm, where she helped get local produce into the kitchens of her rural neighbors who were living in poverty. Her time in farm fields, on fishing boats, and at community meetings and food pantry warehouses in Maine adds wrinkles to the faces of the portraits she paints and compassionate realism to the stories of these individuals and the land and relationships that sustain them.

Trunzo delivers each song with nuance, both lyrically and melodically, and the credibility of someone who is intimately aware of the stories she tells. Imprinted on the timbre of her strong, plaintive voice are the hardships and resilience of the people she has lived among and served and hopes that she continues to serve through her songs. Her no-frills, no-nonsense lyrics cut to the bone of the struggles of rural people in the Northeast.


Admission is free.
