POSTPONED: Belfast—Sundays in the Park – Franco-American music & dance

August 22, 2021 , 2:30 pm 8:00 pm

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. Each event starts at 2:30 p.m. with a music workshop focusing on a distinctive branch of the contra dance music repertoire, followed by a 3:30 p.m. percussive dance workshop, to help participants discover and practice exciting ways for their shoes to fly. Guest performers and workshop participants will strut their stuff at the 5 p.m. concert and showcase, and the event concludes with a 6 – 8 p.m. open jam session for musicians of all ages and experience levels, hosted by the Belfast Bay Fiddlers.

The August 22 event features Franco-American musicians, Don Roy (fiddle) and Cindy Roy (piano and Franco-American step dancing). Don and Cindy each grew up immersed in the melodies and rhythms of Franco-American music in Maine, and after decades of performing and teaching throughout the U.S., the couple was awarded the prestigious NEA National Heritage Fellowship in 2018. Don & Cindy Roy actively foster community music-making and appreciation of traditional music through their teaching and performing, as well as via Don’s unique fiddle orchestra, Fiddle-icious.

Sundays in the Park is free and open to the public, with suggested donations on a sliding scale of $1 to $30, and Belfast Flying Shoes welcomes individual supporters and business sponsors. Current Maine CDC guidelines for outdoor events will be followed. See www.belfastflyingshoes.org for rain info and other details.
