First Friday music, mask and dance
Belfast — Between MaineFare and the First Friday Art Walk, downtown Belfast will be hopping Friday, Sept. 6, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. In addition to the open galleries and studios, many serving refreshments, a number of shops will stay open and there will be entertainment on the streets
Providing art walk tunes will be local musician Scot Cannon, who will play and sing all the old tunes that make people smile, tap toes, snap fingers, grab a partner and dance. Cannon performs his own acoustic versions of jazz and pop standards from the 1920s, ‘30s and ‘40s.
Mask theater performer Beverly Mann will be roving the streets with her fantastic mask characters, inviting passersby to enjoy the exceptional downtown galleries. Maho Hisakawa will be dancing in the streets, as well.
Cannon is a Berklee College of Music graduate in music education and arranging and for the past 25 years, he has toured the East Coast with his mime, music and theater programs for children and adults. Cannon will be doing a songwriting residency with Searsport Elementary this November. He also hosts the “WERU Family Radio Hour” 10 a.m. the first Saturday of every month on WERU 89.9 FM.
