August 17, 2019 Music tonight by Ed Howe and friends. We've had Ed play for the August dance for several years. This is always a really exciting dance because it comes right after the end of Maine Fiddle Camp. That means some campers from "away" hang around for the dance and the "and friends" (musicians and caller) are also folks who have been at Camp. This year hometown favorite (and Fiddle Camp instructor) Maggie Robinson will be calling!! Do NOT miss this dance it will be a lot of fun!!! As always, beginners' workshop at 7:30, dance 8-11PM.
