The 18th installment of the Manifest monthly concert series will offer "two of its most rich and intimate performances" Saturday to kick off the summer, according to organizer Christian J. Collier. Local singer/songwriter Amber Fults will share the evening with My Politic, an acoustic folk band from Boston.

Fults and her band, The Ambivalent Lovers, were finalists in this year's Road to Nightfall competition. She released her debut album, "Center of My Heart," in September 2010.

My Politic's music is reminiscent of artists such as Iron & Wine, Fleet Foxes and Dawes. Founding members Nicholas Pankey and Kaston Guffey have been together since 2003 and recorded their first album, "A Few Words I Couldn't Find Yesterday," when they were only 17. Recently, they have been on tour for their latest album, "American Will," which is their fourth release.

The show gets under way at 9 p.m. Saturday at The Camp House, 1427 Williams St. Doors open at 8 p.m.

In a change from the norm, there will be no fixed admission price.

"Patrons are encouraged to experience the show and contribute what they can or feel is appropriate for the musicians," Collier said in a news release.
