This year, KAA has also played host to performances by musicians with a surprising range of versatility – from bluegrass to country and gospel. Indeed, this arts center has become a magnet for top Maine seacoast performers who favor its intimate, comfortable atmosphere. Live music lovers are no more than several feet away from such performers when they play the KAA. No wonder that fans of live music have made KAA into one of the top live music locations in the area during the past year.

Space is also made available for artists to practice their craft. At the same time, classes are offered for children and adults seeking to explore their inner artistic muse. For those seeking the heart of art along Maine’s southern shore, the Kittery Arts Association has much to offer both visually and musically.
