The SoundCheck series of live performances at the Camden Opera House, 29 Elm St., returns 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15, with Jaded Ravins. The duo’s one-set concert is sponsored by Blue Harbor House Inn.
Guitarist, songwriter and singer Kelly Ravin grew up in Waldo County. Formerly with the alt-country Vermont band Waylon Speed, which toured with Lynyrd Skynyrd during its award-winning years, Kelly has produced a number of solo projects. He and Halle Jade began performing together in 2017 after she joined him in recording his fifth album, “Engine.”
As a duo, Kelly and Halle perform in large and small venues from New England to Nashville, where they lived until recently. The couple’s expressive performances of soulful Americana and country rock originals have garnered them fans and accolades, including being called “a modern day Johnny and June.” Whether playing at home in backcountry bars or in big city clubs, Jaded Ravins are always ready to pour their hearts out on stage.
Tickets are $10, and advance purchase is encouraged via camdenoperahouse.com and 236-3154. The opera house’s choose-your-own ticketing software ensures every-other-row distancing, as well as a couple of seats either side of each party’s reservation, for comfortable spacing.

Doors will open at 7 p.m. SoundCheck also is livestreamed on the COH Facebook page. For more information, and to donate to the Community Arts Fund that makes it all possible, visit www.camdenoperahouse.com.
