Portland Live – 2020-06-28

Are you missing dancing, live music, and seeing your friends? We are too! So we’ve planned a new series to showcase the wonderful talent we love so much.

“Portland Live” debuts via Zoom Sunday, June 28! Join us for an evening of amazing music from Campaign for Reel Time: Betsy Branch on fiddle, Bill Tomczak on clarinet and sax, and Mark Douglass on keyboard.  They will be playing waltzes, contradance tunes, and other danceable delights streamed live from Fulton Community Center, and you can experience it all in the comfort of your own home. Roll up the rug and kick up your heels, or pull up a chair and settle in for a concert.  Join us on Zoom at 5 pm for a half hour of chatting with dance friends, music from 5:30-6:30 pm, and another half hour of chat.
