Portland Live – 2020-07-19

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.

We’ve got another great “Portland Live” event for you on Sunday, July 19, 2020, featuring Joyride!  George Penk on fiddle, Erik Weberg on flute and harmonica, Sue Songer on piano, and Jeff Kerssen-Griep on guitar and percussion.  Another evening of well-phrased melodies and harmonies set in a danceable groove, with chat before and after.  We open Zoom at 5 pm for a half hour of conversation with dance friends, music from 5:30-7:00 pm, and another half hour of talk after the music.  Again we will be on YouTube Live (just 5:30-7:00 pm for the music) in addition to Zoom. Come join the fun.  If we can’t dance at Fulton Hall, at least we can see and hear some of our favorite musicians playing there.

“Portland Live” debuted on Sunday, June 28, with an evening of amazing music from Campaign for Reel Time: Betsy Branch on fiddle, Bill Tomczak on clarinet, sax and percussion, and Mark Douglass on keyboard. They played waltzes and contradance tunes streamed live from Fulton Hall. Watch them on YouTube now.
