Brett Dennen Takes Criterion Stage in his Northeast Vacationer Series

Bar Harbor –  Californian singer-songwriter Brett Dennen will take The Criterion stage on Friday, August 11 at 8 p.m. as part of his Northeast Vacationer Series.

“This tour is focused on vacation spots with natural water features like beaches, lakes, rivers, bays and of course the ocean. Along with catching a show in the evening, you can join me in the daytime for some activities that combine having fun outdoors with environmental stewardship,” Dennen said in an online statement. “I can’t wait to see what the East Coast has in store this summer.” The details of a local environmental clean up aspect will be released soon.

Dennen is a gifted guitarist, vocalist and lyricist who pushes for social change through his music. He has been called timeless by John Mayer and has toured with John Butler Trio, John Mayer, and Rodrigo y Gabriela. His most recent release is Por Favor, an intimate and revealing new album that strips Dennen to his core as a songwriter with nothing to hide.

“The Criterion strives to be a meeting place for the community to exchange ideas through the arts,” said Kristin Leffler, Criterion Media Manager. “Brett Dennen’s smart, narrative, and vulnerable lyrics and overall philosophy of using his art form to push for goodness and social change make him the perfect artist to showcase in our space.”

This show is general admission within three sections: balcony for $28, front section for $22 and general orchestra for $18. Tickets are now available online at
