Grange Notes by Tim Swartz, Grange President (with everyone’s help), January 16, 2021
SPECIAL EDITION! Celebrate our generous donors with a free, online concert & community gathering!
Thanks so much for the help!
In celebration, the Friends are sponsoring a free, online
Saturday, January 30th, 7:30 to 9:00!
From 8:00 to 9:00, local musicians will perform; all of them are regulars at the contra dances held at the Grange.
- Aaron Marcus Montpelier-based piano, keyboard, accordion and banjo player will perform–likely with their piano, Berta, shown in the photo below!
- Joanne Garton, also a Montpelier resident, plays fiddle–and maybe do some Scottish dancing! Joanne & Aaron often play together, as The Turning Stile.
- Jaige Trudell & Adam Broome, Quebec residents, will send pre-recorded performances. Jaige’s fiddle and Adam’s guitar and jaw-harp are also dance favorites at the Grange, where they perform as Maivish!
P.S.–the FCCGH is paying these fine musicians, plus Zoom and Sound tech Oliver Scanlon to put on this event! Much planning and behind the scenes work by Joanne has gone into this event, as well. We are grateful to everyone for joining us to celebrate generosity and this new year!
