Hallowell—Kennebec Contra Dance

May 25 , 7:00 pm 10:30 pm

Kennebec Contra Dance in the Hallowell City Hall Ballroom.

Vermont Folklife’s “Sugar in the Pan” Trad Band is coming to Maine! A program of Vermont Folklife, the Touring Group and the Trad Band nurture youth involvement in traditional music and dance, providing opportunities to learn from tradition bearers, to build connections with artists and communities from Vermont and beyond, and to perform traditional repertoire. Band members include fiddlers Owen Kennedy, Fiona Stowell, Emma Taylor McCallum, and Lux Tierney; Emmett Stowell on banjo, guitar & keyboard; and harpist Eleanor Freebern and cellist Fenton Cooper-Roberts. Sugar in the Pan is especially excited to share their Québecois program with Maine communities, many of which have deep Franco-American roots.

Come join us; dance and listen to their fabulous music. Bring your family and friends. Newcomers are always welcome.
