Jo Dee Messina, a native of Massachusetts, has something special in store for her fans in the Northeast.

On Thursday, June 6th, 2024, Messina will perform at The Bowl in the Pines amphitheater in Sidney, ME, situated on the shores of Lake Messalonskee, set on the Snow Pond Center for the Arts campus.
