Grange Notes by Tim Swartz, Grange President (with everyone’s help), January 29, 2021
Saturday, January 30th, 7:30 to 9:00!
The online concert is part of how the Friends are saying THANKS!
All you need to do to get connected is to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll send you the Zoom link. See below for YouTube and Facebook live-streams for the music!
Starting at 7:30, you’ll have a chance to connect directly with other folks who are attending, using Zoom breakout rooms! Tell all your friends to join too! There will be more socializing after the music!
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 play for you.
- Joanne Garton, also a Montpelier resident, plays fiddle–and may 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! We may or may not get a glimpse of their son Aubrey, visible (in his younger years) on Jaige’s back in the photo below.
