French Dance Fundraiser, Augusta, ME
A Night of Traditional French Music and Dance will be held on Saturday, April 6, at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Augusta, Maine. Two bands will play. Nouveau Chapeau — featuring me on accordéon, Steve Gruverman on clarinet, and Barbara Truex on dulcimer and percussion — plays music from central France and Brittany. Roy, West, and Friends play New England contra music with a heavy Franco-Canadian influence. The fabulous Marie Wendt will teach and lead dances.
The evening is a benefit for World Teach volunteer, Brigid Chapin (my daughter), who is going to Costa Rica in May to teach English to kids there.
